Reviews - What do customers think about Chess Highlights of the 20th Century?

A great book and a future collector's item.  Apr 20, 2001
A special recommendation [and prize] goes to Graham Burgess and "Gambit" publications for their new book, "Chess Highlights of the 20th Century." (Published, 1999.) A beautiful hard-back book, well worth the [money] that I paid for it! This has got to be one of the best books of the last 25 years for a lot of different reasons. A game or a part of a game represents each year. There is also a list of the most outstanding chess accomplishments of that year. There are bunches of really great photo's in the center of the book. And there is a brief recap of each of the most important news [historical] events, from an international viewpoint, for each year. A book for the real collector of fine and beautiful chess books. Destined to be a Classic!!
