Wilhelm Steinitz was the first undisputed World Chess Champion, and a true legend of the game.
Steinitz played chess in precisely the same highly innovative, risk-taking, hard-hitting, yet thoroughly concrete way as any modern great.
Allied to his near-nerveless will-to-win and attacking flair, his exceptional ability to evaluate positions, develop masterful plans and manoeuvre for advantage created numerous games of long-lasting, insightful brilliance.
In this book, Craig Pritchett leads you through an unforgettable learning experience that builds on the extraordinary life and games of one of the greatest players in chess history, many of whose most profound discoveries remain at the very heart of the game in the 21st century.
Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.
