    The book is "My best games of chess" by Alexander Alekhine.

    I'm looking for a new copy.
    I know it is out of print but there has to be a bookstore that has it somewhere.

    Anyone know?

    Not in any libraries, or do you want to own it? Does Amazon have it? I don't know, just throwing out ideas...

    I got a copy I bought in 1990. It's been collecting dust ever since.

    You may be cheaper buying it from amazon since postage to the US from UK will be dearer

    You really want to try and get a copy of the Algebraic version with a foreward by Kasparov and a lot of Alekhines variations corrected by John Nunn. It's simply entitled Alekhines best games. Alekhines annotations are amongst the most lucid i've read and the book isn't spoilt by Nunn's interjections as his comments appear as footnotes, thus leaving Alekhines original notes untouched.
    The book is a true classic. Available on Amazon i believe.

    Yes, I have done it. I found hundred and hundred of sites. The problem? I don't know if they are trustly and secure sites. I just wanted any advice of somebody who told me -for experience- any site where I could buy that book easily, withouth any kind of problems.

    Thanks.
