Mikhail Tal: The Shooting Star of Chess (Paperback)Harry Golombek (author)
Paperback 168 Pages / Published: 19/03/2004

Morphy, Charousek, Pillsbury, Fischer...the history of chess is illuminated by shooting stars who burn briefly across the chess firmament, only to vanish without trace. The parabolic career of the Latvian genius Mikhail Tal conforms all too well to this astonishing pattern. As a virtually unknown student in 1957 Tal swept aside the revered phalanxes of Soviet Grandmasters and ultimately annihilated the Red Czar of Soviet chess himself - Mikhail Botvinnik - all within a mere three year period.
