School Library Journal, January 2003 Issue "Simply the very best instructional chess product available on today's market." Dave Williams, Editor The Royal Game: Simple to learn yet tough to master, chess has been played for centuries. It teaches you to think logically, to plan ahead, and to accept the consequences of your actions. A gymnasium of the mind. As former US Champion & IGM Larry Evans (he makes a guest appearance) says, "Chess is food for the brain. It prepares you for life." Chess improves school work and grades. Many studies have proven that kids attain a higher reading level, math level and a greater learning ability as a result of playing chess. For all these reasons and more, chess playing kids do better at school and therefore have a better chance to succeed in life. Chess develops logical thinking, improves concentration, inspires self motivation and teaches independence. Yaz is a popular, articulate player and has a unique gift for making complex strategies easy to understand.
