The Sorcerer's Apprentice : 40 Recommendations for the Novice, 40 Combinations With Explanations, 50 Games With Comments, 60 Games With Diagrams

Synopsis & Comments from Amazon.com reader:

Read the words, play the games, solve the combinations, go through the book as slowly as you can, savouring everything: this is a banquet!Then, after you read it all and play over all the 222 games, go back to page one and repeat everything. George Orwell said of War and Peace that its only fault was that it had an end and the same is true for this book.Bronstein's views on chess are those of an artist, he is after beauty in chess, not only results. That he has got some VERY GOOD results (World co-Champion, many times Moscow Champion) is a a proof that his views are right. Even the gossip is first rate, believe me! What seems wrong to me is that I have not seen any review of this book up to now and a better player (there must be millions of them) would do this book justice. Try this book, dear reader and your chessplaying will never be the same!
