    I've seen and heard a number of recommendations for this book . Figured you chess lovers might want to get your hands on it:

    Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess by Bobby Fischer.

    It's one of the top books to learn chess as I understand it.

    yes i remember reading that book to pass the time back when I was scanning and listing books for resale

    it's good for beginners and amateurs who havent played in clubs or tournaments yet, but it really is for low-level players. the book was written under a "programmed learning" approach and you solve puzzles starting from the most basic ones to fairly high level games. I'd say if your elo is under 1500 you can benefit from reading it as it will increase your tactical knowledge, board vision, awareness and recognition of chess patterns. if you're more higher level, then you won't get much out of it.
