Why Chess?

Recent studies show evidence of an increased improvement in problem solving skills, notable gains in self-esteem and improved sense of responsibility among children who participate in chess activities.

The game of chess is not merely an idle amusement; several very valuable qualities of the mind, useful in the course of human life, are to be acquired and strengthened by it, so as to become habits ready on all occasions; for life is a kind of chess, in which we have often points to gain and competitors or adversaries to contend with and in which there is a vast variety of good and ill events, that are, in some degree, the effects of prudence, or the want of it.
