Product Details

IM Jeremy Silman's work is a tribute to the beloved game of chess, combining instructional, historical, and personal elements. This strategic game involves a constant battle for power and dominance, with the potential to become an all-consuming obsession or a simple source of enjoyment. At its pinnacle, chess transcends into an art form, and Silman delves into all of these dimensions of the game. The book begins with lighthearted anecdotes about the tournament lifestyle before transitioning to a more serious exploration of the game's history. Silman also profiles eleven renowned players' lives and careers and provides diagrams and analyses for over 275 games. The book includes numerous black-and-white photographs.
