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 second of two volumes covering his entire career, we join his career after his rise into the world's chess elite. During the next quarter of a century, Keres developed and refined his chess into a mature positional style, though always retaining that elegant atacking flair that characterized his ascent to the top. Here Keres annotates his best games from the critical period 1950-1962 and John Nunn then follows Kere's quest by selecting and annotating the finest of Kere's games from 1962 until his death in 1975.

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.
