Starting a chess game with 1 e4 e5 is so common that the resulting complex of opening systems traditionally commands its own sobriquet, “The Open Games” (1 e4 met by other replies are “Semi-Open Games” and everything else comes under “Closed Games”). The central structure with pawns on e4 and e5 often leads to play based around highly classical themes which are the bedrock of successful chess understanding.


First Steps is a new opening series and is ideal for improving players who want simple and straightforward explanations. First Steps emphasizes:

the basic principles
the basic strategies
the key tricks and traps
First Steps books are based around carefully selected instructive games which demonstrate exactly what both sides are trying to achieve. There is enough theory to enable the improving player to get to grips with the opening without feeling overwhelmed. If you want to take up a new opening, First Steps is the ideal place to start.

Editorial Reviews
Review
Throughout the coverage is extremely clear and should be especially of use to juniors and the weaker club player. (Sean Marsh CHESS Magazine, Feb 2018)

This is a fun and informative book. While some of the material is basic ... much of it stresses the micro-principles that when adhered to lead to winning chess play. First Steps: 1 e4 e5 is more of an instructional manual about piece activity in the open games than an opening book, as such it is suitable for a broader range of players than its title suggests. (Mark Donlan ChessCafe.com, April 2018)

A ChessCafe review concludes:
"This is a fun and informative book. While some of the material is basic, with sections such as “How to Beat the Four-Move Checkmate,” much of it stresses the micro-principles that when adhered to lead to winning chess play. First Steps: 1 e4 e5 is more of an instructional manual about piece activity in the open games than an opening book, as such it is suitable for a broader range of players than its title suggests."
