    Hey guys, I know this time of year brings out a ton of chess book recommendation threads, but I'm looking for a chess book written in Spanish. I don't speak spanish but my future brother-in-law does and is very interested in learning the game. He has a basic understanding of the game and some fundamentals about strategy, but something for novices in spanish would be greatly appreciated.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    Ruy Lopez was Spanish. I heard he invented an opening or something. Also something to do with monkeys in their natural habitat.

    I believe Amazon.com carries some books in Spanish. You might just do a search for "ajedrez" (Spanish for 'chess' and see what comes up. However, if you don't read Spanish you might need to have someone help you to decide which books would be most appropriate for a novice.
