This is a nice collection of chess "stuff." The first part contains a bit of poetry, some short stories and other bon-bons. My favorite of the short stories is entitled "Last Round," and features a game being played by an aging master. A poignant and yet positive story. The second part of the book is composed of chess problems and some classic chess matches. Masters whose games are included here include Morphy, Alekhine, Petrosian, as well as others. The final essay? "The greatest game of chess every played," a 1922 contest between the great Alekhine and Bogolyubov. Is it really number one? That's part of the fun, as the reader will have to make up his or her own mind about this claim. . . .

If you enjoy chess (and I used to a great deal), this is one cool book! I received it as a Christmas gift in 1973, and it represents one of my favorite among such gifts.

The title perfectly describes the book. After you are done studying your instruction manuals, you can pick this up and read strictly for fun. Chernev's choices are excellent. The first part is a series of short stories by different writers which are thoroughly pleasant ... also some very mysterious things go on. The second part is a bunch of puzzles and games. The annotation particularly is impressive. All in all, a wonderful chess companion (and I just happen to have one for sale at Bill's Books at Amazon Marketplace). Enjoy!!

In the pre-Fischer time, this book was good. I read it about 15 yrs ago, and have had quite a few fairy tales to tell friends. But now looking back, I don't understand why those "nice" stories got into the books. Don't get me wrong; those stories have great value, high quality, and very interesting; are very good for magazine. But they are the leading sections for the real chess following? However, if they don't get into this book or similar Chernev's books, then where would they be ever appeared in book forms? How many chess books about the chess prodigy, chess computer, and chess stuff that we thought we could read some good games from those books and got none at all? At least this one provided some games. The real chess part is very very good. The part about famous chess games, great endgame, chess problems, and more are very exceptional. 3 1/2 stars for this book: 2 1/2 for the chess part, 1 for the none-game part. Sometimes we have to raise our expectation.
