KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of stories about chess and chess players, chess oddities, tricks, records, remarkable games and their stories, incidents and exploiting oversights, famous defenses, patterns of attack- in short, the kinds of things touching upon chess which addicts will adore- and those who don't play chess will find abysmally dull and for the most part unintelligible. Fortunately, there are an increasing number of chess enthusiasts. And rumor has it, that any chess book sells.
