This edition is reviewed on Chess Cafe:
Judging from this review, the new edition has a lot of added typos, so perhaps my old edition is better. Unfortunately, the pages are starting to fall out. The first edition hardback is the one to have - provided you are happy with descriptive notation - but they are very rare. Simple Chess is an introduction to chess strategy. The chapter headings are:
- Weak pawns
- Open files
- Half open files: the minority attack
- Black squares and white squares
Overall, Simple Chess is an excellent book and deserves its mini-classic status, and I highly recommend it. It packs a big punch for its size!
