Never ask a question unless you know the answer.

So, I'm about to do the thing you do with this book. You call it stellar, you say it alone would be sufficient justification for the entire life of the writer, you rave on too much.

But then you see this, at Edward Winter's site:

Bronstein expressed irritation that he was remembered for his world championship match with Botvinnik and his book on the 1953 Candidates’ tournament.


Forget I mentioned your book David Bronstein.

And it gets worse. No wonder it irritates him to be remembered for this book.

Concerning the book on the Candidates’ tournament, Bronstein revealed that much of the text was by Boris Vainstein

Fuck.

And an update 25/10/2017. It gets so much worse: http://en.chessbase.com/post/shattered-illusions-genna-sosonkos-the-rise-and-fal...
