A US Champion celebrates a collection of his best games and explains why he mysteriously walked away from the chessboard aged just 23. This is a really absorbing read because Rachels played games against the elite but with hindsight can be reflective and honest about the people he met. In 1993 he left the game but older and wiser he can be more revealing allowing the reader to have access to the gossip and whispers about famous players that are normally never published. Stuart Rachels passes on his knowledge of chess. Included are his duels against legends such as Kasparov, Anand, Spassky, Ivanchuk, Gelfand and Miles, but the heart of the book is the explanation of chess ideas interwoven with his captivating stories. There are chapters on tactics, endings, blunders, middlegames, cheating incidents, and even on how to combat that rotten opening, the Reti. Rachels offers a complete and entertaining course in chess strategy. At the back are listed 110 principles of play, bits of wisdom that arise naturally in the book's 24 chapters. Every chess player will find it difficult to put this sparkling book down. As a bonus, it will make you a better player. Softback, 416 pages. Dimensions 170 x 234 x 28mm, 794g.
