Boris Spassky was a chess genius who became World Champion in 1969.

But he was also gracious in defeat after he lost his title to the American Bobby Fischer in 1972 in the Match of the Century. The Russian Boris Spassky was the perfect gentleman.

This biography includes fifty of Spasskys best games, annotated by former Russian champion Alexey Bezgodov, and a biographical sketch of a few dozen pages, written by Dmitry Oleynikov, the Director of the Chess Museum in Moscow.

Spassky was born in St. Petersburg in 1937, he moved to France in 1976 and returned to Russia in 2010. On his road to the World Championship, he defeated all his contemporaries convincingly in matches, including Paul Keres, Efim Geller, Mikhail Tal, Bent Larsen and Viktor Korchnoi. He lost his first match for the ultimate title against Tigran Petrosian but won in his second attempt in 1969.

With his all round style, fighting spirit and psychological insights, he could beat anybody anytime and, for example, won at least two games versus six other World Champions: Smyslov, Tal, Petrosian, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov.

Hardback, 278 pages.
