In this comprehensive book for players of all ages, Grandmaster Kallai provides a straightforward, easy-to-use guide to surviving the maze of chess openings, covering all the popular modern openings starting with 1 e4. Rather than present a mass of bewildering variations, as is common in most opening books, the author concentrates on developing a solid understanding of the ideas of each opening, so that readers can start each game with confidence. He arms the aspiring player with the fundamental grounding essential for achieving sound and promising positions from the opening, with an emphasis on formulating good plans for the middlegame.

These two volumes combine for something comparable to, I don't know, FCO, maybe? They're not quite as reference-y as MCO, but well beyond something like Seirawan's Chess Openings. Kallai gives you many variations (albeit, not in neat MCO columns), but many are basic. 1 e4 e5, 2 Nf3 d5?! is mentioned, as are a number of other lines that you won't see at Hastings. There's text explanation beyond the symbols, and a very nice Further Plans section.

As an older book, the lines aren't current, but most pawn-pushers could use this to get to a certain point and then use a database to vet for recently discovered busts. If you must play the latest lines (and you probably mustn't), then this isn't the place to find them.

Downsides:
-You really need to buy two books to get the full effect, and cost wise that can be a deterrent (they aren't super-cheap used).
-The layout is crammed and sometimes it is to keep track of the line you're following vs. the departures. I sometimes lose track of the parentheses.
-No index. For a long opening section (QGD, Sicilian, Ruy), you have to rummage a bit to find the line you want.
-Some lines aren't obviously located. The Four Knights Scotch is with the Four Knights Defense (really should be "Game"), not the Scotch.
-Glued bindings. I recently bought a replacement copy after 10 years with my original; pages were falling out. The good news is this shows that I've used the book a lot and want to go back for more.

This (along with More basic chess openings) is the best primer on chess openings. This is also not only for beginners. If you are an intermediate player and wants to learn a new chess opening you must first start with these books. For instance if you've only played either e4 before and wants to learn d4, going through these books will quickly show you the main lines of the new opening as well as most of the traps associated with them - it is like having a coach showing you the bascis of a new opening.
I have 2 new students and we are going to work through both books as I believe that learning basic openings (even if you dont play all of them) is a great way to learn beginners some strategy in chess.
For instance Kallai evaluates the final position explaining that whites pawn structure is better or that the bishop pair is stronger etc.
In total the books are aboout 350 pages. It is easy and quickly to work through them.
I think for a beginner to intermediate player you need nothing more than these books - and it will learn you the basics of ALL chess openings.
For my students I follow the following basic training:
1) Tactics (and a bit of endgames)
2) Basic chess openings of Kallai
3) Example games of that specific opening I get from internet putting everything together from opening to endgame.
Like I have said, they learn a lot of strategy through the openings.
I am an intermediate player myself with a rating of 1700.

Not just the openings are basic, also the annotations.

Great!

My only problem with the book is the title: it is only about e4 openings, mostly from white's perspective. The companion d4 book is probably necessary to learn how to respond when playing black against d4.

5 stars otherwise; I love the presentation. I started learning openings with Reinfeld's very basic primer, but I think it would be easy to start with this book. I especially value the discussion of middlegame plans after each main variation; this is lacking in many other opening books that focus on variations. A nice balance of details and strategy.

I highly recomend this book. As an intermediate player (1700-1800), I found myself usually getting behind in the beggining against more advanced players. This will teach you just about every opening (along with "More Basic Chess Openings") and ensure your confidence at the start of a game. If you have never picked up a chess book, like myself, this is where you should start.

I enjoyed this book. It is clear concerning viability of different lines. Many opening books are too detailed for my level of play. I don't have an ELO rating, but I'm ~ 1900 on Excite's chess site. Good luck translating that one :)
