My name is Maxen R. Tarafa and I'm a Skill Artist. In a few short months, I went from a struggling post-beginner to an adept intermediate player and doubled my Chess ability by teaching myself. In this book, I show you how you can double, even triple, your Chess ability like I did, but faster.
But I'm going to tell you right now. My method is rather controversial.
You see, most chess "experts" bombard you with complex Chess notation (QxB6?) and expect you to read complex Chess terminology. I don't do that. I'll give you a cheat sheet of what you NEED to remember, and you'll be off to the Chess boards and killing Queens like it's nobody's business.
In this book, you learn:
-How to play your first 10 moves so YOU control the game (Chess Openings)
-How to use 3 techniques (or Chess tactics) like bringing light sabers to a knife fight
-How to identify one weakness, if you simply recognize it, you can win in one move
-How to cut your training time in Â½. Know what to study and apply brainhacking techniques.
-How to avoid common beginner mistakes with time-tested Chess strategy
-Where to find FREE Chess websites, apps, videos, and technology to double your skills
-How to use the one principle I taught to Eduardo that took him from losing miserably to unbeatable
-How to "bend" the Chess rules with little-known special moves (it's not cheating!)
I taught a 9-year-old these principles and a week later he was beating 17-year-olds. Anyone, even you, can learn how to double your Chess ability by learning a few easy principles. You'll even learn how to speed your decision-making and play speed chess.
If you're looking for quick and easy Chess instruction to double your skills, but don't want to learn complex terminology and notation, this book is for you!
Don't let your friend, brother, dad, or roommate beat you again!

Anxiety is known to affect the cognitive process of the mind. Explanations on the effects of anxiety on these processes have been refined through increasingly more detailed cognitive theories. The theories began as generalized views of anxiety being a distraction as could be seen in the concept of cognitive bias (Calvo and Eysenck, 1998). Research has provided an explanation that anxiety affected the functions of the central executive in the processing efficacy theory. Attentional control theory refined processing efficacy theory's explanation of anxiety. Attentional control theory pinpointed specific functions affected by anxiety. The theory shows that anxiety which is not related to the individual's present goal can impair shifting and inhibition functions in cognitive processing, but research into attentional control theory has shown that is related to the current goal anxiety causes an increase in processing efficacy (Causer, Holmes, Smith, and Williams, 2011). Understanding the different impacts of anxiety and how it relates to the individual and the goal at hand can serve to improve efficiency in functioning, learning, and responses of an individual. Further research concerning the refinement of current theories is discussed.
