9780786473373: Mikhail Botvinnik: The Life and Games of a World Chess Champion

The games of Mikhail Botvinnik, world chess champion from 1948 to 1963, have been studied by players around the world for decades. But little has been written about Botvinnik himself. This book explores his unusual dual career--as a highly regarded scientist as well as the first truly professional chess player--as well as his complex relations with Soviet leaders, including Josef Stalin, his bitter rivalries, and his doomed effort to create the perfect chess-playing computer program. The book has more than 85 games, 127 diagrams, twelve photographs, a chronology of his life and career, a bibliography, an index of openings, an index of opponents, and a general index.

He makes you aware of Botvinnik's myriad achievements and gives you a good sense of his life and times"--Manchester Chess Federation; "covers more background information on the person Botvinnik, that I ever have ever seen on print before!"--Chessbook Reviews; "Soltis tells a fascinating story...a brilliant account, the best book written on Botvinnik by far"--Huffington Post; "an excellent job...recommended"--Chess Life; "Soltis's best book so far"--Dale Brandreth, Caissa Editions; "Grandmaster Andy Soltis exceeds all expectations in this epic life of chess' most enigmatic world champions. McFarland Publishers have set very high standards in the world of chess publishing with many of their titles winning prestigious book awards. With this new work on Botvinnik, McFarland has again raised the bar for excellence. Soltis presents a wonderful selection of games with stories behind their competitive significance. The games are well analyzed by Soltis. Soltis has written a modern day classic chess biography. Soltis' readable portrait of one the great players of all time, once picked up, is very hard to put back down"--The Birmingham News; "Soltis exceeds all expectations in this epic life of chess most enigmatic world champions.
