The Spectator - Book of Chess
Ray Keene has been writing the chess column every week in the venerable Spectator magazine since 1977. Since then not a week has gone by without a chess article appearing in the paper. This makes Ray the longest serving continuous contributor to The Spectator.
After a slight delay - of 27 years - the first book to anthologise the best of the Spectator columns has at last appeared. Top results, games by masters, grandmasters and champions, all furnished with detailed comments, combined with a series of chess brain teasers, complete a veritable chess education. With his outspoken views on the World Championship, the World Chess Federation and Man v Machine matches, the author also turns this book into a state of the art commentary on one of the most exciting yet turbulent phases of the development of world chess.
