Overview

Are you a chess addict, or do you just play at it? Whatever you are, you will be enlightened, intrigued, amused by this gossipy, intimate account of chess masters and how they operate.
Like all of Fine's book, this one combines humor, understanding and profundity. It is a collection of 50 of the finest games played in recent years by the world's greatest masters. Each game has an introduction and is copiously annotated in such a way that a mere beginner can follow the workings of the world champion.
Chess is more than a game; it is a passion. To people who play these games, the excitement, the thrill, the glory of victory and the sorrow of defeat meant more than the cold logic of the pieces. The author has gone to great pains to highlight the human side of these battles of the giants as one who has known every leading master of the past 20 years well, he is eminently qualified to do so.
Are chess masters people? Read this book and find out.
