Do you want to become a better chess player? A more proficient chess teacher? If so, then Dr. Alexey Root's Prepare With Chess Strategy is for you.

Building on the Boy Scouts of America's Chess merit badge pamphlet, Dr. Root uses multiple examples to explain and reinforce the concepts introduced in that pamphlet.

Prepare With Chess Strategy is a step-by-step guide to help beginner to intermediate-level players learn the common elements of chess strategy, such as Force, Space, Time, and Pawn Structure. Scouts and other players can practice chess with the book's exercises and test themselves with its end-of-chapter quizzes. Merit badge counselors, chess coaches, and teachers will find this book a valuable resource for their own lessons and workshops.

Prepare With Chess Strategy to achieve your chess goals!

Alexey Root has a Ph.D. in education from UCLA and is a senior lecturer at The University of Texas at Dallas, teaching education courses that explore the uses of chess. A tournament chess player since age nine, she was the U.S. Women's Champion in 1989.

After the introduction of the Chess merit badge in 2011, Dr. Root became a Boy Scouts of America merit badge counselor. She conducts chess workshops and tournaments at the National Scouting Museum.

Dr. Root's six previous books include Children and Chess: A Guide for Educators (2006) and Thinking With Chess: Teaching Children Ages 5-14 (2012).
