Book by Edward Winter


"you will...marvel at [this books] excellence...with a sense of affection, attraction and respect for one of the great champions of all time...a scrupulously detailed historical accounting...the book is simply wonderful"--Chess Life "there are very few chess books published which have become classics...a will marvel at [this book's] excellence...scrupulously detailed...the book is simply wonderful"--Chess Life; "a wonderful piece of scholarship"--New In Chess; "fascinating reading"--British Chess Magazine; "no admirer of Capablanca should be without this book"--Manchester Chess Federation; "undoubtedly one of the best chess books I have read."-- GM Nigel Short; "a magnificently researched work by the world's most renowned chess historian."--GM Yasser Seirawan; "highly recommended"--IM John Donaldson (; "Edward Winter's brilliant book Capablanca stripped the fluff from the third world champion's legend, letting long-forgotten facts separate man from myth and showing that, at times, the actual man was far greater than the myth would have us believe. By humanizing someone who was always deemed larger than life, and was idolized by chessplayers and non-chessplayers alike, Edward Winter, the world's greatest and most respected chess historian, has given us a piece of literature that has become a legend unto itself, and is universally viewed as one of the greatest books ever written about chess"--IM Jeremy Silman, (; "a gem. I think Capablanca would have chosen it as the best of all the books on him. It represents a tremendous amount of work. A wealth of material has been amassed with the precision and care of a devotee. It is also a beautifully produced tome, with that sober elegance so characteristic of Capablanca himself."--Olga Capablanca Clark; "everything written about, and written by the great Cuban, World Chess Literature has been assiduously rifled...unique selection of photographs"--Chess Moves; "a monumental work"--Quarterly for Chess History; "outstanding thorough research and accuracy"--Chess; "fascinating treatment"--Winnipeg Free Press.
