KIRKUS REVIEW

A book for the up and coming addicts which collects stories about the game and its players. There is absorbing (for them) material on chess oddities, tricks, records, remarkable games, and incidents, famous defenses, patterns and attack, exploited oversights, etc., etc. Some a matter of history and knowledge, and here, collected, make a valuable reference for those keen on the game.
