    Book Description

    Dr. Tarrasch begins with the endgame — because it's easier for a novice to deal with a few men than the entire 32. An important and extensive discussion of the middle game follows. Finally, the author deals with openings and offers enlightening comments on many historically important variations. Over 340 diagrams and 12 complete games.
