Logical Chess Move By Move: Every Move Explained New Algebraic Edition - Irving Chernev The games contained in Logical Chess are fairly simple and Black usually makes a huge blunder within the first twenty moves (either terrible piece placement or blissful ignorance of White's mating attack). Thus the book is useful to learn a few development tricks that'll help you secure the point (rather quickly, I might add) against a more inexperienced opponent. If you're looking for positional subtleties, however, this isn't the book for you.
