This review is from: Mikhail Tal's Best Games of Chess (Hardinge Simpole Chess Classics S.) (Paperback) this book covers
mikhail tals career up to the match in 1960 against botvinnik when he became world champion. there are wins in it against
botvinnik smyslov fischer and keres-the notes are very full and read really well-the author has carefully researched russian
sources and if tal misses a trick clarke spots it. the games- being tals- are mainly very brilliant-he was the supreme magician of
the chess board and liable to crush even the greatest of opponents with his amazing tactics. the print is very clear and the
diagrams are well chosen -in fact this is one of the books i wd definitely take with me on a desert island.

Tal's Rise, July 31, 2002 By A Customer
This review is from: Mikhail Tal's Best Games of Chess (Hardinge Simpole Chess Classics S.) (Paperback) A great book - I
really liked it. These books publsihed by Hardinge and Simpole on how the great chess players Tal, Botvinnik etc. rose to take
the chess crown, are wonderful for understanding the various tactics of the masters of chess. What makes it more interesting is
the preface and foreword which provide great background info., bringing the games to life.

Synopsis, July 9, 2007 By Hugh Davies "Teenage Chess Prodigy" (UK)
This review is from: Mikhail Tal's Best Games of Chess (Hardinge Simpole Chess Classics S.) (Paperback) Mikhail Tal took the
chess world by storm when he blasted a path through the titans of the global chess board - Fischer, Smyslov, Keres, Petrosian -
and seized the crown of the mighty Botvinnik. Tal sacrificed as if there were no tomorrow and the very greatest were humbled
and smashed by his whirlwind tactics. In this book British chess master Peter Clarke takes the Tal story up to his victory in the
1960 world championship, a victory which seemed to herald the death of strategy and the triumph of tactics on the chess
board.Peter Clarke won numerous silver medals in the British Championships, he represented England in the World
Championship cycle and he played top board for England in the Chess Olympiad at Havana 1966. He is a fluent Russian reader
and his notes access the very best of contemporary Soviet commentary.
