Mikhail Tal

Mikhail Tal's hazardous and imaginative playing style took him to the very top of the chess world - he became World Champion in 1960 - and his autobiography is undoubtably one of the best and most entertaining chess books ever written! Players of Tal's ability are few and far between but for such a player to have a great literary talent in addition marks him out as a unique star in the chess firmament.

The book charts Tal's career from it's beginnings up to 1975 with autobiographical material taking the form of an extended interview between "a journalist" and "a chessplayer" (both Tal). There are 100 complete, annotated games as well as many more part games and positions included in and amongst the text.

Tal was one of the great figures of 20th century chess becoming (at the time) the youngest ever World Champion and changing a whole generation's approach to the game. This book offers a fabulous opportunity to understand the way Tal interpreted chess and also to study some of his most brilliant games.

Published 1997, softback, 496 pages.
