As silly as it sounds, I am considering getting the book "Winning Chess Strategies for Kids" by Jeff Coakley. It has really good ratings and while I know it is for kids, I feel like it can teach me something "adult" books can't. I feel like we all learn better when we approach problems and solutions like children because we are more open to making mistakes. I never seen the book in store but I was looking at it on Amazon and I think I may go for it. Thoughts?
That is quite expensive for being a child's book and based on the reviews, it must be decent. I can't say I ever thought to do it but when I was looking through some of the pages (through Amazon) it sounded like a really good book. Maybe not for someone who knows a lot about chess but for a beginner.
It's not silly at all, for beginners I would always start with kids books, they actually take proper time explaining and sometimes it's far clearer than in classic books. This one looks good, I also like reviews on this one:
