LESSONS FROM MY GAMES

One of the Grand Masters of chess, a past world champion and the author of several books indispensable to chess fans, reviews a quarter-century of activity. He presents about fifty of his games with extensive and illuminating analyses of the ideas behind the moves. His opponents include the great names of chess -- Alekhine, Lasker, Capablanca, Reshevsky. He writes of tournament play, discusses the Russian and the Hypermodern schools, sketches the strengths and weaknesses of his opponents, and describes a game of ten-second-a-move chess with a fifteen-year-old with as much enjoyment as a world-championship encounter with Botvinnik. This book is aimed not for the general public but for chess enthusiasts, among whom it will be considered an important text.
