Great lessons in strategic thinking!,
By A Customer
This review is from: One Hundred Selected Games (Dover Chess) (Paperback)
This book contains one hundred of Botvinnik's games from 1926 to 1946. Unfortunatly a lot of his realy great games were played after 1946, but this book nevertheless provides insight into Botvinniks strategic thinking.
If this book had contained games of a later date i would not hesitate to give it five stars, as for now I would like to give it four and a half if that was possible.
If you have to choose between this and Tal's book on the title match in 1960 I would definetly go for Tal's book, which has better prose and fresher material. However, this is a very good book as far as the study of chess-technique goes, and definetly worth the bargain price.
