Chess Books Online
Let us introduce ourselves. We are two nineteen year old chess players from Groningen, The Netherlands.
Like every dedicated chess player, our brains are never satiated with knowledge of chess. Good chess is about strategy, tactics and pattern recognition. When you know and recognize a position, you're in control. The most efficient way to achieve this is to read, read and keep reading.
Until a year ago we used the website of Amazon.com to purchase our chess books online. Their large collection of chess books is most definitely a 'gift from heaven' for all chess enthusiast around the world.
However, the way chess books are categorized on the Amazon.com website is, in our opinion, a major drawback. We found it very difficult to find books about for example, a specific opening, how to start an attack in the middlegame and chess books especially suitable for juniors or beginners. Therefore we decided to create a website with the advantages of Amazon.com, and an added improvement from our side.
Our goal was to make a website large enough to contain all Amazon's chess books, with a clear structure and logically ordered. We started with selecting all different openings, middlegame and endgame books. We expanded these categories with subcategories of each specific opening and possible middlegame and endgame situations. We also created many other categories such as books for juniors, books about tournaments and many, many more. This enormous database was connected to a powerful search option, specially developed for our website.
It soon became clear that it would be a lot of work, and it turned out to be. It demanded blood, sweat and tears and long hours of work.
The result of this intense project has become www.Chess-Books-Online.com. We are sure that every chess player will find our website useful.
