In this instructive and entertaining book for players of all ages, the legendary David Bronstein, artist and sorcerer of the chessboard, invites the reader to become his apprentice. Bronstein begins with 40 recommendations for the chess novice and then develops the reader's chess skills with examples from his own games, of which there are 222 played between 1938 and 1995 - a career spanning 57 years! Although the book has been written primarily for amateurs, with easy-to-understand commentaries, more experienced players - yes, even grandmasters - will also enjoy Bronstein's many interesting stories and the way in which he waves his magic wand. This is an unconventional book, probably quite unlike anything else the chess world has seen to date, but then again, the main subject is also quite unique!
