    Anyone read this book by Tal? I've heard great things and I'm curious if it improved anyone's level of play?

    Have looked at botvinnik vs Bronstein game from 1960 to learn the basic principles behind the King's Indian opening.

    Found this link very useful.

    It's possibly the best book on a world championship match written by one of the participants, and easy to get hold of

    eg http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/1888690089/202-9356319-1827842


    even if it doesn't improve your grade (Tal relied on native talent rather more than applied study), it's a very interesting read

    There's no possibly about it, it is the best book on a world Championship match written by anyone.

    The Tal match book is the best. I have a copy, signed by the translator. I don't know where i got it from, and it's falling apart. Not made well, pages just fall out all over the place, but it's a well-written book.
