The Australian who won the first World Correspondence Champion is renowned as a great writer. The first 25 games are world championship games. The next 25 are grandmasters in conflict while the last 50 are masterlevel combat from his friends in Australia and New Zealand.If you have not read over games the Purdy has annotated, you are in for a wonderful treat. Who better to analyze games than the world's first correspondence chess champion? Softback 152 pages. Dimensions 152.4 x 230 x 12.7mmOnline Review As someone who has studied plenty of chess but is mired still in the club range, I have found one area that I have neglected in my training. Playing over annotated games as Purdy suggests. There is an oldschool feel to how he writes at times (he wrote such clear books when very few were out there, as opposed to now when there are many more like this). But that is part of what I like about it. He writes simply and clearly, and provides apt feedback for a blind annotator. I especially like how the book is not simply a book of annotated games, but that a few essays about studying, thinking and tactics are included. For all the books I have, I am finding my time best spent with these games are the best.
