Item description for Max Euwe: The Biography by Alexander Munninghoff...

I am certain of victory over Euwe, said World Champion Alekhine in 1935, and he was hardly the only one to underestimate the Dutchmans chances. Euwes win came as a shock. This magnificent book, filling a gap in the literature of chess, shows that Euwes world title was the result of his iron will, his methodical drive and his energetic handling of all aspects of the game. Max Euwe has been called a genius of order and the chess logician. He wrote more than 70 books, many of which are still in print today. By bringing his world title under the aegis of the world chess federation FIDE he profoundly changed the history of chess in the twentieth century. It was Euwes diplomatic determination as President of FIDE that saved the Match of the Century in 1972 between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky. Alexander Mnninghoff tells the unforgettable tale of the fifth World Champion. His gripping story is illuminated by numerous photos and fifty games with the original annotations of Max Euwe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Max Euwe: The Biography?

A great biography on a great player  May 22, 2008
I was hesistant for a while before actually purchasing this book. After all, it's hard to know if you will really enjoy a book before perusing through it yourself. On top of that, Max Euwe is known as one of the "lightweights" of the world champions as he only held the title for two years. But I'm glad I finally did! What a wonderful book. The guys at New in Chess have once again produced an outstanding treatise. I would say that this book is up there with Winter's biography of Capablanca. Munninghoff really brings Euwe to life. It's hard to imagine a better biography on this player being produced. The format of the book is also very attractive as it is laid out in double-column fashion with several diagrams and great photos. Strongly recommended for lovers of chess history and biographies in general.
Gotta love Max  Feb 20, 2002
Max Euwe was one of the finest players ever to come to the game of chess. He was also a living proof that one could indeed be a World Champion of the game without being an egotistical prime-donna. For lovers of the game and its history this is a fascinating read.
