Kasparov, Garry Garry Kasparov on Fischer: My Great Predecessors Part IV Not only does this book contain rich analysis by the greatest chess mind of the latter 20th century, but it also contains his critique on the best known American chess player in history, Bobby Fischer. Even the newest to chess would find Kasparov's anecdotes amusing, so this is a gem for any player. 
Schiller, Eric Standard Chess Openings This book contains a comprehensive overview of commonly played openings seen in tournament and casual games. The reader should beware that often Schiller's works are rife with analysis errors, but the core of his text is valuable to consult. 
Edited by Just, Tim and Burg, Daniel US Chess Federation's Official Rules of Chess A valuable resource to have and to hold, especially in a tournament where you might want to claim something. 
Chernev & Reinfeld Winning Chess: How to See Three Moves Ahead Often, if a chess player can get ahold of older texts, this is the best way to truly improve analysis powers. Older books relied more on brainpower than computer analysis, for the simple reason that computer analysis did not exist! This is one such book, with instructional positions and commentary making this worth the read.
