'Learn from the Legends' is a modern classic. ChessCafe chose it as their Book of the Year and IM Jeremy Silman went even further when he wrote: “I can’t recall having seen a better book in the last two decades.” Ten years after the original publication, Quality Chess is proud to offer a revised hardback edition with a new chapter on the latest chess legend, Magnus Carlsen.

Mihail Marin examines and explains the ideas of the legends who shaped modern chess. The chapters in this book discuss:
  • Rubinstein’s excellent rook endgame technique
  • Alekhine’s expertise with the heavy pieces
  • Botvinnik’s ability for deep analysis
  • Tal’s handling of heavy pieces vs. minor pieces
  • Petrosian’s positional exchange sacrifices
  • Fischer’s strength with the king’s bishop
  • Karpov’s handling of bishops of opposite colour
  • Korchnoi the rebel
  • Carlsen the new king
Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world's finest chess authors.

This new edition is available only in hardcover.
