Topschach Kommentar:
Schwerpunkt dieses Buches ist die Schachgeschichte. Das klingt erstmal, wie schon tausendfach dagewesen. Aber dieses Buch lebt von Anekdoten und Hintergrundberichten, welche selbst einem Insider bisher unbekannt waren. Aber auch bekannte Dinge werden in einem neuen Licht dargestellt. Wer sich für Schachgeschichte interessiert, wird um dieses Buch nicht herumkommen.
