    Finally including the PGNs on the downloads! Definitely a step in the right direction for Empire Chess.

    Like the Comprehensive Beginner Chess Course, I bought this Manifesto series for my kids. Honestly, Damian is my favorite presenter. His style is similar to the Comprehensive Beginner Chess Course if you watched that series. Damian lectures at a moderate (not fast) pace, he explains the purpose/ideas behind every move from the beginning (he does not rapidly click through some parts, like the opening, as some other presenters), and he is clear and understandable. For example, after the first few moves, Damian would often stop and explain the main ideas about the particular opening, not assuming the viewer knows the opening. Another thing I like about Damian is that he gets down to business; there is no 5 minute speech at the beginning of the video, maybe 30 seconds, and then he says “let’s get started”. I love it! To the point! My 7 year old son watched every video from the Manifesto series. My son watched the videos with a physical chessboard and chess pieces in front of him, and he played through the games while Damian lectured. Damian’s pace and explanations are so perfect that my son easily followed the lectures. I hope that Damian makes a Manifesto 2.

    Great course Damian, even better than the comprehensive beginner course you did last year. The PDFs are a solid addition, I agree with Jack the PGNs are definitely helpful, and the tactics puzzles are a nice twist. Keep up the great work!!

    This is a good DVD set for beginners or those with a little experience. Grand Master Damian Lemos is a great teacher and having the accompanying pdfs is like having the notes for class made for you by the professor.

    As a retired man, I have realized that I need a new hobby and I really want to learn to play chess. I know isn’t easy but now, at the end of my professional career, I have extra time to practice with some friends and even with my grandsons. I appreciate this effort to get all the people whom want to learn from you.

    I have purchased the Club player’s manifesto and the comprehensive beginners package (10 DVD’s + Bonus), and I have to say, I am quite impressed. I am learning so much – from the beginners – that I can guess something like 60-70% of a famous grand-masters moves without in depth analysis. They repeat key ideas a lot, so they are easy to remember. I have gone through most of the prequel – the beginners one – and it is great. I skimmed the Club player’s manifesto, and it looks even better! I look forward to all of the quality study in this package. The bonus is it contains puzzles and summaries of all of the DVD’s and is also more advanced than the beginner – which is well worth it! I am 1694 USCF and the dvd’s had a huge part in my improvement (I was less than 1100 last January)
