Review of Winning Chess Puzzles for Kids

I recently reviewed Jeff Coakley's superbly fun book Winning Chess Puzzles for Kids for ChessCafe and this review is currently posted at their book review page.

Here are a couple of my comments:

"Immediately upon opening Jeff Coakley’s Winning Chess Puzzles for Kids, the reader will be struck with the feeling that this is a fun book, not just another chess puzzle book to challenge the mind.

At the start of the book, the author writes, 'If you like chess, you came to the right place. This workbook is full of fun puzzles and challenging problems that will help you become a better player.'

In my opinion, Winning Chess Puzzles for Kids meets this goal and then some. Not only will readers improve, they’ll do so without the drudgery of page after page of textual explanations and endless variations."

You can also read the entire review at the ChessCafe archives here.
