Chess Books for Beginners

I haven't picked up chess pieces recently, but my mind has been on strategy and gaming. The books that originally propelled me into the lofty stratosphere of above-average club player were from the nice series "Winning Chess X" by Yasser Seirawan.

The books have a nice mix of diagrams and prose, not too dense. Winning Chess Strategies has "must-know" concepts for any chess player, and Winning Chess Tactics will really take a beginner to the next plateau.

And I also like playing chess here.
