I'd say it's ok but nothing to be very proud of

fair enough

"Attacking Chess" by Josh Waitzkin, is in your price range. It's a coincidence, I don't really read Chess literature, I barely have the motivation to solve chess problems from time to time, it's just that I read this one back when I was really enjoying playing chess a lot and tried to improve. It's an OK book for beginners I think, although not specifically aimed at blitz, I'm sure you'll be able to find specialized literature on blitz.

im not looking for specialized books. just a book that teaches every basic stuff about chess on a beginners level. like the go-to book if you want to learn chess.

Well that's the only recommendation I've got, but maybe you'll get some others in this thread. Good luck.

Don't waste your money when you can get all you need for free on the internet. Just youtube opening and defense tactics. If you get good enough for tournament level, then invest some money, until then just keep an eye out for tactics on the internet.

1. Learn more about Endgames 2. Avoid learning too many openings, stick to very few 3. Books- #1 related books

Try it out, it stimulates the brain and you learn to focus.

It is like the very essence of games with tactics and strategy. When playing there is nowhere to hide and it is universal also, so one can play people from all over.
