Memory Brain Training - Book 1: Amusement Parks


Human brains are flexible and ever growing. Studies show that the more one uses their brain, the stronger that brain gets. Research with nuns finds that nuns who have Alzheimer's do far better than expected because their daily activities keep their brains sharp and engaged. It can come down to the "use it or lose it" maxim - if you want your brain to stay alert, you want to put it through gentle exercises every day.

That's where this Memory Brain Training book comes in.

Within this book you'll find ten images, all on the theme of amusement parks. For each image you will stare at it, focus on it, and memorize as many features of the image as you can. Then, when you turn the page, you'll be asked a series of questions about that image. How many cars were on the roller coaster? What were the colors on the striped tent? Through this process you'll be training your brain to concentrate, focus, and build its recall.

What's great is that the book provides long term training. Come back to it in a week. Do you remember any of the questions? Which ones? Are you able to answer more questions correctly?

The more you train your brain, the better you get at focus, concentration, and memory recall. Take that step every day to improve your life!

Book 1: Amusement Parks is the first book in this brain training series. These books are suitable for all ages from eight to a hundred and eight.

The ChessCafe Puzzle Sampler

The ChessCafe Puzzle Books! We are pleased to offer excerpts from three of the most popular chess books available today. They are The ChessCafe Puzzle Books 1 and 2 by German grandmaster Karsten MA 1/4 ller and Book 3, also by MA 1/4 ller, and in cooperation with Dutch international master Merijn van Delft. All three books are available in both traditional, hard copy and electronic editions. The original books are published in figurine algebraic notation, with Informant-style evaluation symbols. For this Puzzle Sampler, we have converted the notation to simple English algebraic and replaced the Informant-style evaluation symbols with text. The ChessCafe Puzzle Book 1 combines clear discussions of tactical themes with over 600 well-chosen positions to test, challenge and teach. Although the classic combinations are not ignored, the great emphasis is on positions from modern tournament practice of the last decade. From CCPB1, four puzzles with different tactical themes (please note that the actual numbering of the puzzles has been changed for this Kindle edition). It is Black to move in Puzzles 1 and 2, White to move and Puzzles 3 and 4. Solutions are immediately after the four puzzles. The ChessCafe Puzzle Book 2 takes on the more difficult and less tangible aspect of positional play. As most chess instructors and players know, it is much more difficult to teach and learn strategic concepts than tactics. The author not only presents puzzles to solve, but also presents examples of different strategic ideas. Here is an excerpt from the section about Outposts. One of the most important skills a chessplayer needs is the ability to defend a position that is under siege. In the third volume in the highly acclaimed, best-selling ChessCafe Puzzle Book series, international grandmaster Karsten MA 1/4 ller, along with international master Merijn van Delft, examines and expounds upon the vital defensive concepts and techniques used to repulse enemy attacks. From CCPB3, three puzzles with different themes (please note that the actual numbering of the puzzles has been changed for this Kindle edition). It is Black to move in all three puzzles. Solutions are immediately after the three puzzles.

The Rules of Chess

Chess is one of the most challenging - and enjoyable - games that has ever been played. It has a history that goes back over a thousand years, and there is some evidence that perhaps it is even older than that. The Rules of Chess is a free book, in electronic format, that will teach young and old how to play the "Royal Game." Written by one of the great instructors of the modern era, Bruce Pandolfini, it is in fact a small excerpt from his extremely popular book Let's Play Chess (2nd edition). After the material is presented, there is a section listing and describing the chess books published by Russell Enterprises, Inc. which are also available in electronic format. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy The Rules of Chess by Bruce Pandolfini...

Tactical Patterns Made Easy: Chess Concepts Made Easy Book 2

Tactical Patterns Made Easy

Tactics are very important in Chess. How to spot winning material and other tactics?

Using text and 850+ large clear color diagrams, FIDE Master Bill Jordan shows you how.

Chess has relatively easy rules but is potentially a game of great complexity. The complexity is achieved by the large number of ways the simple elements can be combined. The number of possibilities increases geometrically with the number of units on the board.

Pattern recognition

There are many tactical pattern which happen again and again in games. Skilled players are familiar with many patterns and themes, through both play and study. This familiarity allows players to spot tactics much quicker than they would otherwise. There is a strong correlation between playing strength and how quickly a player can find tactics.

The book starts with a fresh look at the simple elements of chess and how they can be put together. Elements include the chessboard itself and the basic functions of the units. Types of patterns are explained. The last section contains a large number of common tactical patterns.

Types of patterns include attack, checkmate, ways to draw and ways to win material. Drawing patterns include stalemate patterns and perpetual check patterns. Patterns involved in winning material include Forks, Pins, Skewers, Discoveries, Nets, Ties and Discoveries. Saves are also examined.

This book includes many positions that have been collected for coaching purposes over many years. The book is designed to help the reader to quickly become familiar with many tactical patterns. It may also help refresh familiarity with tactical patterns that have been previously seen, but partly forgotten.


The positions have been invented. In many cases they have been simplified and have few units on the board which are not involved in tactic being presented. In many cases they are fragments of positions, one or more Kings may be missing. However they are are very similar to positions from actual play and are quite unlike composed positions.


In all positions White moves first and White is playing up the board.

Moves are numbered from the current position, not from the start of the game.

The book uses standard chess notation, which is short Algebraic notation. It is desirable to know this.

There are different ways you can read this book.

You can treat the positions as puzzles. You can choose the move you would play and move to the next diagram to check whether you are correct or not.

You can simply enjoy playing through through the positions, becoming familiar with a wide range of tactical patterns as you do so. You can quickly flip forwards (or backwards) through the sequence of moves in each position.

You can combine both approaches. For example, during a first reading you could play through the positions. On a second reading you could see how many you can solve from the starting position.

The Look Inside feature currently does not support Kindle eBooks in Topaz/Print Replica/Fixed layout KF8 format. Currently we do not have the option to have LITB enabled for the fixed layout format, considering the conversion issues involved in it.

However, our technical team is working on improvements to have the feature enabled and are working to meet the customer requirements.

I am working on this. Look inside 'Checkmate Made Easy' to see what the graphics look like.

Bridge secret: revealed

I am a bridge teacher. I believe that bridge is the best card game ever created. But also I know that many people know a lot of myths about bridge. Often people think, that bridge is just for very intelligent people.

I want to show you that bridge is very interesting and not complicated. 98 % of my students become bridge players and 100% students understood what bridge is. I hope that I managed to move the lesson in the book.

Bridge is great game and you can play and win it, that's why I wrote this book.

Good luck and hope to see you at a table.

Ren of Atikala: Volume 1 (Kobolds)

I am Ren of Atikala. Kobold. Sorceress. Warrior. I have many stories to tell and this one is about my home. Home. The word has a special resonance with us all. Great or humble, rich or poor, everyone cherishes their home, and if deprived of it, loses a piece of themselves. I once thought that life could not be so cruel as to take everything I'd known in an instant. Oh how I now understand that life can be capricious indeed. This is the story of how I came to the surface of Drathari and unwillingly traded a life for a life.
