Mikhail Tal & Alexander Koblencs

Mikhail Tal is one of the all-time chess greats. In 1960 he became the youngest champion in world history at the age of 23, sweeping to victory at his first attempt. His extraordinary tactical ability has never been bettered, and his reputation goes from strength to strength.

This absorbing book, first published in the early 1980s, is based on diaries kept by Tal's coach from their training sessions, and this unique perspective makes it a fascinating and effective chess instructor, written in engaging language and suitable for teenagers as well as older readers.

It is based mostly around Tal's analysis of 40 of his own games, carried out immediately after the games were played whilst chess and psychological influences were still fresh in Tal's mind. Other annotations by either Koblencs or Tal appeared later in the Soviet press.

The book shows how Tal achieved greatness through hard work, application and the influence of a world-class coach, and through this book modern readers can catch a glimpse of the development of a true chess genius. The book is fully updated and converted to algebraic format.

Published 2013, softback, 270 pages.
