Excellent book Aug 23, 2007
Gelfand is an interesting player, and I found myself going over most games to a point.
Best game collection Aug 20, 2006
Boris Gelfand is one of the great players of his time, and a genuine "good guy" to root for in the elite chess scene. The chess analysis is fantastic, all critical variations are covered suitable for club player and above. The first chapter on his best games in the Gruenfeld is worth the price of the book alone, there are plenty of headspinning variations in these games. If you like to play with initiative you will immediately want to play this from both sides in your own games. Gelfand is also an expert in the endgame and there is a lot of practical work to do in this book.
