Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess

by: Bobby Fischer, Stuart Margulies, Don Mosenfelder
This book is essentially a chess teaching machine. The way a teaching machine works is: It asks you a question. If you give the right answer, it goes on to the next question. If you give the wrong answer, it tells you why the answer is wrong and tells you to go back and try again. This is called "programmed learning".

Stuart Margulies is a chess master and also a recognized authority on programmed learning.
