Some interesting picks for the club player or serious beginner who wishes to improve. Some are classics (e.g., The Art of Checkmate; My 60 Memorable Games; Think Like a Grandmaster) that can be enjoyed by all levels. Others are more on the post-beginner side. Logical Chess: Move by Move and 1001 Chess Exercise for Beginners are excellent "transition" books for that grey area between beginner and more experienced club/tournament level players. How to Beat Your Dad at Chess is great for adults too! Not just for kids.
