Reviews

Starting Chess is actually a set, consisting of both a three-hour DVD and a fifty-page booklet. The booklet is also available as a PDF file on the DVD. Either the booklet or the DVD can stand alone on their own merits as an introduction to chess for the beginning player. The material is not identical; the intent seems to be that the booklet can allow for a handy, quick review of the information provided at greater length in the DVD.
