    Book DescriptionSoviet Grandmaster Alexander Kotov (1913-1981) was both a top ranking player and a world-famous author. Champion of his country, winner of international tournaments, and even a contender for the world chess championship, he is best known to players in the west as the author of the best-selling Think Like a Grandmaster and the sequel Play Like a Grandmaster.

    Grandmaster At Work is both a collection of Kotov's best games and a textbook of practical chess play. Whole annotated games are grouped thematically, so that the book assumes the character of an original textbook on the most important aspects of chess theory. Kotov's annotations reveal how the "laboratory of a chessplayer" works.

      This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.
