CLEARANCE - Ratings of Chess Players Past and PresentProduct Code: CB0360RB
One of the most extraordinary books ever written about chess and chessplayers, this authoritative study goes well beyond a lucid explanation of how today's chessmasters and tournament players are rated. Twenty years research and practice produce a wealth of thought-provoking and hitherto unpublished material on the nature and development of high level talent.
The step-by-step rating system exposition should enable any reader to become an expert on it. For some it may suggest fresh approaches to performance measurement and handicapping in bowling, bridge, golf, and elsewhere, 43 charts, diagrams and maps supplement the text.
Development of the performance data, covering hundreds of years and thousands of players, has revealed a fresh and exciting version of chess history. One of the many tables identifies 500 all-time chess greats, with personal data and top lifetime performance ratings.
