    Book DescriptionPaul Keres was one of the greatest players in chess history and a leading contender for the world championship for over 30 years.

    His modest, honest and open-minded approach to chess made him popular with chess enthusiasts the world over. These qualities come over supremely well in his writing. He has neither axes to grind nor points to prove; he merely helps the reader understand the secrets of chess.

    In this book, the first of two volumes covering his entire career, Keres charts his progress from his early days as a self-taught young talent to the end of the 1940s and his battles for the world title. During these years, his play developed considerably, as he honed his flair for wild, sacrificial tactics into an elegant, world-beating attacking style.

    Paul keres was a national hero in his native Estonia. As a teenager, he was already able to hold his own against the likes of Alekhine and Capablanca. He is widely considered the strongest player in chess history never to become world champion.
