Learn from the Legends is a modern classic. ChessCafe chose it as their Book of the Year and IM Jeremy Silman went even further when he wrote: "I can't recall having seen a better book in the last two decades." Ten years after the original publication, Quality Chess is proud to offer a revised hardback edition with a new chapter on the latest chess legend, Magnus Carlsen.
Mihail Marin examines and explains the ideas of the legends who shaped modern chess. The chapters in this book discuss:
Rubinstein's excellent rook endgame technique
Alekhine's expertise with the heavy pieces
Botvinnik's ability for deep analysis
Tal's handling of heavy pieces vs. minor pieces
Petrosian's positional exchange sacrifices
Fischer's strength with the kings bishop
Karpov's handling of bishops of opposite colour
Korchnoi the rebel
Carlsen the new king
Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world's finest chess authors.
