Books Could anybody out there recommend a good chess book for a beginner like myself, I know all the basics but seem to struggle with my middle and end game.
I live in the UK

You may get a few in here also but im sure you would get more in the chess forum

I would recommend "Better Chess for the Average Player" by Tim Harding ...

Suggestion Personnaly, I find reading chess books rather dry, especially ones on endgames. But play alot of games here, analyze your games, and discuss and read the topics in this forum every day and you'll only get better.

..books... (1) get a copy of "A complete chess course " by FRed Reinfeld,thou it is in descriptive notation,
(2)read allthe 5 books but especially "Tactics" and "Strategies" by Yasser Seurawan, in microsoft press as suggested by brobishkin above,
(3) go to the archives section at and read all the "Novice nook" articles by Dan Heissman....
(4) challenge frodan to a game of chess.....

Thanks to you all for the tips so far, One thing I should really stop doing is playing my games at work, I cannot concentrate and rush my moves in between calls.
frodan: I can,t challenge you to a game due to the points difference, do you want to challenge me?
