This is one of the last books of the twice Hungarian Champion, Attila Schneider, who died recently of heart failure. His work is characterized by what is termed an ironic humour, and is interspersed with wisecracks by such classics as Molière, Goethe, Shakespeare, Dostoyevski, Villon and others. The annotations to this splendid selection of games are funny, original, and instructional. It is a highly entertaining book for beginners and professionals alike, as well as for all those who are interested in fine games of chess ended in spectacular mates.
