A good "first chess book"
This is a great book for beginners. It explains the rules, basic strategy, how to play openings, explains the different stages of play (opening, midgame, endgame), and annotates some famous chess games. You will quickly outgrow this book however, because it does not go in-depth in any one topic. It's a good foundation though. I don't understand how the other reviewers who gave it a one-star rating were so confused by this book. If you get lost in reading "Chess for Dummies", playing chess may not be the best endeavor for you.
