Hi: I popped in to check out this board because my 12-year-old son is a serious (=obsessed) chess player, so I was just curious about the goings on over here.

He studies twice a week with a GM in our area who highly recommended a new-ish book several months ago called "Concise Chess Openings." I can't remember the author, but it's a small square white book; I found it easily at Borders. My son has a number of books on specific openings, but for a good, quick intro to most standard openings, he and his teacher like this one because it does a good job of explaining the strengths and pitfalls of the various common openings and their variations.
