    This was published over 30 years ago, and still inspires today. For those who have not read this, it well worth it.

    I get all my best titles from good ol' bookslut. They open their pages for anyone over there.

    Interesting book. Too bad he didn't know about algebraic notation though, we stopped saying 'pawn to king four' decades ago but of course it was written decades ago so you can't dis him TOO much for that.

    Didn't even know there WAS a Kentucky chess scene.....

    Right now, my favorite book has to be Gelfand's Positional Decision Making in Chess. He shows how his style is patterned after Rubenstein, who is also one of my influences.
