About the Author
Grandmaster Miguel Najdorf (1910-1997) was born in Poland. While he was playing in the 1939 Olympiad in Buenos Aires, World War II broke out. Jewish, Najdorf could not risk returning to his Nazi-occupied homeland, and so he remained in Argentina, where he became successful in both business and chess. He ranked among the world's top 20 players for over 20 years, and was always among the game's most colorful and esteemed personalities. This was his only book.

Najdorf's annotations are instructive and much more pleasant to read than Bronstein's. What ruined the experience for me was the poor editing. For instance, in the 2nd game between Najdorf and Reshevsky, moves 9 and 10 were omitted and in game 5 between Szabo and Geller, in the note to move 16, it gives 16. ...Ng4 which isn't possible (Nb4 was probably what he meant). These both came from the 1st round games and if it is an indicator of what is to come...
Najdorf deserved better than this.
