Please indulge me in a bit of shameless self-promotion.
I recently wrote two chess books for adult beginners, a topic on which I have given free classes at the club for the past 20 years. I published the books a few weeks ago. They are available at the Harvard Book Store, both online and at the brick and mortar store at 1256 Mass. Ave. in Cambridge.
Thanks for indulging me. Again, these books are available at the Harvard Book Store (http://www.harvard.com/book/chess_for_adult_beginners/ and http://www.harvard.com/book/chess_workbook_for_adult_beginners/). Unfortunately, the 'Look Inside' option isn't available online. I'll bring in and leave a copy of each book for the club this weekend, so that members can flip through the pages.
