Product Code: B0351IS

Alternative Views:


One of the most entertaining and instructive books on chess ever written. Edward Lasker recounts how as a young boy he met famous old masters, learned from them and worked his way up the ranks until he became one of the strongest players himself. 

In this book, Lasker provides mini-biographies for many masters who otherwise would not be remembered today. He shows how he learned from them and this enabled him to increase his chess strength. 

This book by the well-known author of Chess Strategy makes a unique contribution to chess literature. Added to the purely technical contents are a number of features which make the book interesting even for those readers who do not actually play the game. 

There are chapters on the relation of chess to Science and Fine Art, on the psychological aspect of tournament Chess, etc. which form a vivid frame for the more technical parts. The 77 examples from actual tournament games are interwoven by anecdotes about some of the great masters and by reminiscences of the authors personal encounters with them.
