RHM published the original edition of this enchanting autobiography of the magician from Riga in 1976. John Nunn and Cadogan Chess brought it back to life two decades later in algebraic notation, and corrected obvious typographical errors, such as accidental omission of moves.

Many of the world's top players have named this as the greatest chess book of all time! This editor ranks it in the top three. If the following quote rings a chord with you, this book belongs on your short list:

In the 1955 USSR Team Championship Semi-final, playing White against Korchnoi, after the moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5, I captured on d5. I was so terribly ashamed and from that time I swore: to play for a draw, at any rate with White, is to some degree a crime against chess.
