About Chess Book
This book is a classic of chess. The book is divided into four primary sections, an introduction and three parts. In the introduction, Mason discusses general method of chess. He addresses many major and minor points. 'A thorough understanding of the board is of the first importance, as without it no progress in chess worth the labour is possible. It is in this matter that the young player most commonly errs at the very outset. Mistaking more or less familiar acquaintance for accurate knowledge, he assigns the board a secondary place in chess economy.' This last statement could be taken as a general maxim for many chess players - they mistake acquaintance or familiarity with accurate knowledge. There are sections on openings (not so valuable as grandmaster strategies, but rather interesting to see the breadth of possibilities), as well as endgame examples, showing the power and variations possible with each particular piece.
