When you study chess books, you’ll become more skilled. At the beginning of your chess journey, you don’t know what to study and how to study, so you buy some random books. There are a lot of important things to learn about chess when you are just starting out. In addition, I’ll tell you to read about the history of chess and the lives of some of the best chess players you know. If you do that, you’ll be able to figure out how chess came to be and learn about some of the most famous players.
Here, we’ll look at the 10 best books for beginners to learn how to play Chess. There are some ebooks on this list. Don’t buy all these books at once. Make sure you buy only two or three books. Then, read and study those books. I will also say that you should not buy a Kindle version of any chess book. This is because there are a lot of chess positions in the book, and Kindle is not good for that kind of thing. You should always get a hard copy or a soft copy.

Sadler and Rogan show how AlphaZero thinks and tell the story of why people do what they do and how they came up with the techniques that made AlphaZero. As a beginner, you should learn how the engine works. It will be very useful in the long run to do this.
