This book is excellent, and is especially great at guiding parents on how to support their children through their chess journey.
Playing chess is no easy ride, whether you™re Magnus Carlsen or a beginner, so we all need guidance on how to navigate through the difficult journey. I love the way the book emphasises a growth mindset and how to deal with the difficult situations we all experience at some point whilst playing chess. The content is broken down into small easy-to-read parts, in which the authors both share their invaluable experience.
It also displays very instructive chess games which readers can play through or skip over if they are non-chess-playing parents. So many scenarios described in the book resonate with me, so it will certainly be accompanying me to chess tournaments “ and I would highly recommend it to anyone close to the game of chess.
