Study Chess with Tal : chess tactics from the grandmaster Paperback / softback


Mikhail Tal is one of the all-time chess greats. In 1960 he became the youngest champion in world history at the age of 23, sweeping to victory at his first attempt.

His extraordinary tactical ability has never been bettered, and his reputation goes from strength to strength.

This absorbing book, first published in the early 1980s, is based on diaries kept by Tal's coach from their training sessions, and this unique perspective makes it a fascinating and effective chess instructor, written in engaging language and suitable for teenagers as well as older readers.

It shows how Tal achieved greatness through hard work, application and the influence of a world-class coach, and through this book modern readers can catch a glimpse of the development of a true chess genius.

The book is fully updated and converted to algebraic format.
