I read this book, but I can't remember what edition it was. Probably the first.

I think it's a very good book for people who know little or nothing about chess. It gets them off to a good start. My wife read it shortly after we were married and it helped her chess tremendously. She's now rated over 2000 on this site.

Edit: I may have confused this book with "Chess for Dummies."

I started playing two years ago. Making little improvement in the last six months, I decided to go back to basics and bought that book on the recommendation of an improvement article in Dan Heisman's Novice Nook over at chesscafe.com

It seems a good book, but for some reason I've stopped half way. Need to dust it off and continue!.
