Chess BooksThere are more books on the game of chess than on all other games combined. Many of them are excellent, but for those whose schedules demand the most efficient reading list (like me), I've written short reviews of books I've read and provided information about books I've learned about from others. For the serious adult player or advanced junior, you won't go wrong with the Comprehensive Chess Course. You can also consult our training plan. Other good books are listed here.
