The classic book now with modern algebraic notation with additional games to make it a 21st century edition. Dr. Lasker's original text on opening play, attack, defence, and endgame, with analyses of games by Morphy, Steinitz, Tarrasch, and Dr. Lasker himself. From the day when he won the World's Chess Championship from Steinitz in 1894 to his defeat by Capablanca in 1921, Emanuel Lasker reigned as the undisputed chess genius of the world. Though surely his unique talent cannot be transmitted, the basic principles upon which his chess mastery was based are outlined clearly and succinctly for the benefit of all chess enthusiasts in his "Common Sense in Chess." An online reviewer wrote Kasparov's writing convinced me to take Lasker's writing more seriously. So I did. Common Sense is a quick read and great primer for beginners, even if the opening advice is stuffy, hey, at least it's systematic and easy to imitate.Anyhow, I didn't read this book for the chess advice, but rather for its philosophy and definition of chess as a fight, rather than as a science,art,etc. Softback, 128 pages. Dimensions 155 x 227 x 7mm, 186g.
