Both an instruction book and an engaging meditation on the joys of chess, this is the final work by one of the most successful chess writers of all time. It blends anecdotes and the author's own observations on inspiring moves and combinations by well- and lesser-known players, including Troitzky, Réti, Kasparyan, Benko, Kubbel, Rinck, Grigoriev, and many others. Each example is introduced with a cue ("White to play and win") and includes the composer's name, the date of its original publication if available, a clear diagram with an algebraic grid, and the winning variation presented in algebraic notion.
