    1. Movie cliche # 17 : the chess game. In every film scene that involves a chess game, one player gazes at the board and makes a long range move with a queen or bishop which ends up next to the other guy's king, and he - or she - says "Mate". And the opponent looks suitably amazed or bemused. This is a wretched lie and would never happen in real life. Okay, it might happen if you're playing a seven year old. Anyone else can see the mate looming at least two or three moves before it happens, and wil [...]

    2. This is a very good anthology of the greatest chess games of all time, but it does raise the question of what selection criteria to use. After a while, you realize that chess games are just another form of literature, and the criteria are in many ways similar to the ones you would, for example, use in a poetry anthology. In particular, some games are included just because they are well known and have become part of chess culture, the way a poetry anthologist might include Tennyson's "The Charge [...]

    3. This is an amazing collection of one hundred of the greatest chess games ever played. Arranged chonologically, the book presents each game with a little history of both players, and an anecdote about the game. Games from 1834-1997 are included, and some of the top players represented are: Capablanca, Fischer, Karpov, Kasparov, Botvinnik, Alekhine, Lasker, Tal, an many more! Good annotations along with multiple diagrams per game.

    4. A cheesy title, but a surprisingly good explication of interesting games. The various historical squibs about the featured players are more interesting than you'd expect, too--chess-players frequently lead semi-tragic lives, apparently.

    6. I picked this up after reading Manny's review. It's a very cool book.What I like about it so far is that it presents the games, along with variations, but it also gives biographical information about the players, as well as focusing the reader's attention on the key themes of the game before hand, and then has concluding lessons from each game. I feel I will get quite a bit stronger by studying it. It seems very appropriate to my level, but also seems to be the kind of book that will continue gi [...]

    7. A nice capture of key games in the history of chess, that if I ever get back fully into chess, Im sure would have make aware of some of the logical joy possible in a game. Good introduction and seemingly good annotations of each game.
