My Best Games
Vol. 1: Games with White
Edited by Ken Neat and André Behr. 208 pp. with many diagrams
This book gives Korchnoi's best games with White, which are particularly noteworthy for his original methods of fighting for the initiative.
"Korchnoi's master trick is to persuade the reader that he plays chess in much the way you and I do. Realistic or not, such an approach is well calculated to send the reader back to the chessboard with a determination to improve ..."
Chris Ravilious in CHESS
"This work is one of the few that deserves to sit on the shelf alongside such classics as Fischer's Sixty Memorable Games and Tal's Life and Games. In fact, it should probably take pride of place as it is likely to be of far more practical use to the vast majority of chess players who, like the author, would not claim to be chess geniuses. Although we know he is, of course ... This book is a reminder that there is still one live dinosaur out there in Caissic Park. And he's still got very sharp teeth."

Victor Korchnoi has defeated all the world champions, beginning with Botvinnik, and all the strongest players of the present and the past. Not only from this generation, but even from the following one. I can't nearly wait for the next volume! Highly recommended!
