    Book Description

    Widely regarded as the best chess book ever written, "Masters of the Chessboard", discusses the playing styles of each of the leading grandmasters of history up until that time.

    Richard Reti was one of the strongest and certainly was the most original player of all time. He defeated, at least once, almost every leading player of his era. He defeated Capablanca, Alekhine, Euwe, Rubinstein, Bogoljubov and Tartakower in tournament games.

    He invented new and successful opening systems and brilliant endgame studies.

    He was also a gifted and entertaining writer.

    In this book, Reti examines the technique of each of the great masters of his era and explains what enabled them to reach the top levels of competitive chess.

    This 2008 edition includes a new introduction explaining Reti's contributions to modern chess theory.
