  2. Understanding the rules
  3. Strategy and Tactics

While Maxine Brady's interpretation of some the rules in section 2 is questionable, her explanations would probably be helpful to a new player.  Even though there are some errors in the book, it has a wealth of research that would be interesting to any Monopoly enthusiast.
