Book DescriptionAlthough Rashid Nezhmetdinov (1912-1974) was not widely known in the West, his games have a great reputation among connoisseurs of attacking play. Among his many distinctions in chess are his score of six wins, nine draws and five losses against World Champions.

As former World Champion Mikhail Tal wrote: "With the passage of time tournament tables tend to lose interest, but some games played in these tournaments live forever, and in this respect Nezhmetdinov is one of the most richly endowed players. I have played four games with the Tatar master and the score is 3-1 in his favor."

David Bronstein also sang his praises: "Rashid Nezhmetdinov is a virtuoso of combinational chess."

Both Tal and Bronstein acclaimed the Russian editions of this work, now translated into English for the first time. Containing over 100 of Nezhmetdinov's best games with his own annotations, this book will be welcomed by all lovers of imaginative chess.

    This seems to be regarded as the West's answer to "The Soviet School of Chess" by Alexander Kotov ISBN 4871878198 who asserts superiority in the Soviet playing style. However, those who say that are mistaken. This book by a New Zealander who emigrated to England because of the greater opportunities to play chess there, fully concurs with Kotov that the Soviet players were the best in the world.
