Summary

Are you a beginner in the game of chess and looking for a simplified guide to help you master the chessboard to win like a PRO and become a chess grandmaster? If this is you, then read on…

Chess is a beautiful game that allows you to exercise more of your mental power than any other game in the world. It sharpens your visual imagery and makes you think faster than you can imagine. You even get to own your own colony of warriors and leaders, where you stand as the chief. All of these are done on a board, so, yes, chess is a board game. And on this chequered board are several pieces—the warriors—whose modus operandi are entirely unique and intriguing.

Surely, you have heard of a bishop, and the first thing that comes to mind about it is a man that attends to the spiritual things of God. But then, in the chess game, the bishop is dynamic, and ready to fight, standing as one of the most cherished pieces in the game. There are also knights, pawns, rooks, queen, and king. Some people have called the chess game a labyrinth, and in some way, it really is. It stirs up a feeling of you being lost in some maze and then, finding some means of escape.

However, before you can control a colony in chess, master the chessboard and win like a PRO, you have to understand how the chess pieces operate. You have to know what they stand for, how they move, how they wouldn’t move, their value, what you should do, and shouldn’t. Honestly, there are a lot of things to know to become a grandmaster in chess, and that is why this book—How to Play Chess for Beginners—was written, to set the foundation and to help you master the game with time.

Below are snippets of what you stand to learn;

	Terminologies used in the game of chess.
	Name of all the chess pieces, how to recognize them and their functions on the chessboard
	How to setup the chessboard effectively.
	How to strategically move your chess pieces for the best possible outcome and the 3 special chess moves that can make the difference
	An understanding of how check and checkmate works
	An understanding of the opening, middle, and end game in chess and the strategies you can apply to win and become a grandmaster.
	You’d learn the mystic way of reading your opponent’s moves to your advantage and;
	You’d also get to know all the mistakes you should avoid as you play the game.

A whole lot more is wrapped inside this book. And whether you are a beginner or a grandmaster of chess, there’s something big in here for you to learn.

So, what are you waiting for?

    My Inappropriate Life - Some...

    In her hilarious New York Times bestseller You'll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again, Heather McDonald recounted her adventures as an unwilling virgin in Hollywood. Now happily married with three wonderful kids, she shows that life as a grown-up-even a pretend grown-up-has its challenges. Heather's a working mom with parents who live next door; a sister who keeps asking for one of her still fertile eggs; and friends who are up to more hijinks than even Heather can handle. 
     
    This self-proclaimed "Real Housewife of Woodland Hills" is determined to achieve A-list status (thus expanding her entourage beyond her three school-aged children and a house-husband who is infuriatingly bad at collecting neighborhood gossip) and defeat (or at least be accepted by) the mean neighborhood moms who judge her for taking her kids to a stripper pool party in Vegas. It's a lot to juggle when she's also battling her Chelsea Lately coworkers for the crudest and most elaborate practical jokes (don't ask her about that "free" Vera Wang dress). 
     
    Just as laugh-out-loud funny and irreverent in her storytelling as she is on camera as Chelsea Handler's partner-in-crime, in My Inappropriate Life Heather recounts her misadventures with a disarming candor all her own. 
     
    "Most moms that you work with come to your desk uninvited and start showing you photos or telling you boring stories about their kids.… Not Heather McDonald. Instead she shows me photos of her new pool." -Jen Kirkman, author of I Can Barely Take Care of Myself 
     
    "I don't know any other person who can tell me they are 'over trees,' mean it, make me laugh about it, and at the same time make me wonder if perhaps I am, too." -Sarah Colonna, author of Life as I Blow It

    The charming adventures of one family's mission to build a deeper, lasting connection to land and community on their Vermont farm. When Ben Hewitt and his wife bought a sprawling acreage of field and forest in northern Vermont, they were eager to start a self-sustaining family farm. But over the years, the land became so much more than a building site; it became the birthplace of their two sons, the main source of family income and food, and even a classroom for their children. Through self-directed play, exploration, and experimentation on their farm, Hewitt's children learned how to play and read, test boundaries and challenge themselves, fail and recover. Best of all, this environment allowed their personalities to flourish, fueling further growth. In Home Grown, Hewitt shows us how small, mindful decisions about day-to-day life can lead to greater awareness of the world in our backyards and beyond. In telling the story of his sons' unconventional education in the fields and forests surrounding his family's farm, he demonstrates that the sparks of learning are all around us, just waiting to be discovered. Learning is a lifelong process—and the best education is never confined to a classroom.

    “Looks at the pioneering designer, Sydney Camm and examines his legacy, which was the design of two of our most iconic fighter planes . . . Brilliant!” —Books Monthly   “This Man Saved Britain” ran a headline in the News Chronicle on 18 February 1941, in a reference to the role of Sydney Camm, designer of the Hawker Hurricane, during the Battle of Britain. Similarly, the Minister of Economic Warfare, Lord Selborne, advised Winston Churchill that to Camm “England owed a great deal.”   Born in 1893, the eldest of twelve children, Camm was raised in a small, terraced house. Despite lacking the advantages of a financially secure upbringing and formal technical education after leaving school at 14, Camm would go on to become one of the most important people in the story of Britain’s aviation history.   Sydney Camm’s work on the Hurricane was far from the only pinnacle in his remarkable career in aircraft design and engineering—a career that stretched from the biplanes of the 1920s to the jet fighters of the Cold War. Indeed, over fifty years after his death, the revolutionary Hawker Siddeley Harrier in which Camm played such a prominent figure, following “a stellar performance in the Falkland Island crisis,” still remains in service with the American armed forces.   It is perhaps unsurprising therefore, as the author reveals in this detailed biography, that Camm would be knighted in his own country, receive formal honors in France and the United States, and be inducted into the International Hall of Fame in San Diego. “John Sweetman’s new biography ably recounts the life of one of the most remarkable figures in 20th-century aviation history.” —Aviation History Magazine

    “A superb new book . . . explores the history of Britain’s first National Park from the Stone Age to the modern day . . . lavishly illustrated.”—Reflections Magazine   The moors of the Peak District provide some of the finest walking country in England. The pleasure of rambling across them is enhanced by a knowledge of their history, ranging from prehistoric times and the middle ages to their conversion for grouse shooting and the struggle for the “right to roam” in modern times. This distinctive landscape is not an untouched, natural relic for it has been shaped by humans over the centuries. Now it is being conserved as part of Britain’s first National Park; much of it is in the care of The National Trust.   The book covers all periods of time from prehistory to the present, for a typical moorland walk might take in the standing stones of a prehistoric stone circle, a medieval boundary marker, a guide stoop dated 1709, the straight walls of nineteenth-century enclosure, a row of Victorian grouse butts, a long line of flagstones brought in by helicopter, and very much more besides.   “This is no ‘desk-based study’ but the product of a lifetime of living, working and researching in or immediately adjacent to the moors.”—The Local Historian   “David writes with a contagious enthusiasm. This generously illustrated book roams amongst the best—and lesser-known—moorland features . . . a guide par excellence.”—Peak Advertiser   “Few tomes can have been quite as comprehensive as David’s. Within these pages are Romans and Vikings, railways and canals, ramblers and World War Two soldiers.”—The Star (Sheffield)
