Is there a book you would like to own, but do not?

Or an e-book?

Is it a luxury edition? A manual? A biography? A classic? Something that has piqued your interest in the forums or a review somewhere? Please tell us.

My great predecessors series by Garry Kasparov, I have his \"How life imitates chess\" and find that his writing style is enjoyable while being deep and informative. Also \"Searching for Bobby Fisher\" by Fred Watikins again have his book about Garry and Antoly last championship match and his style is very engaging. Oh and a complete opening libary if that isn\'t to much to ask -

D\'oh, I forgot to say \'chess\'.

I am almost glad I didn\'t, Anzarbond. That is a great choice. Malala, born 1997, blogger, activist in northwest Pakistan, banned from school, shot, still campaigning, still studying. Good luck to her. What spirit.

You might make new friends with your choice of a complete opening book, Baggy_Gee.

You have reminded me of a modest opening book that captured my heart. I owned it, lost it, and felt headless: \'Opening Repertoire for the Positional Player\', by Eduard Gufeld and Nikolai Kalinichenko.

I don\'t know if they have lifeline over in canada, but we have it here, Twice a year they fill the Brisbane exibition center with mile after mile of tables and cheap (criminally cheap) book and every time i go and troll through their sport, games and hobby sections to find more chess books. I got David Bronstein\'s Zurich International 1953 for about 50 cents.-

Just read the link, if I find it cheap, I\'ll let you know. Good looking book-

Good grief. I don\'t suppose there is a space on your bookshelf, is there?-

24Australia  Baggy_Gee2014-02-12 01:18:30
Well not much, our lounge room has two walls of roof to floor books shelves which are full and then there are misc. bookshelves around the house as well.-

Although dsuttles! You remind me the same book of Eduard Gufeld i purchase from Jeraisey book mall Riyadh Saudi Arabia.After won the same book never reached my home till today.It taken one of my friend who meet me in the way market.And said me i want to purchase the same book but it is out of the stock.I told him read and return me as soon as possible.-

The one problem with that book, Anzarbond, is that every time you turn a page, it falls out. This may explain why your friend has not returned your book.-

I don\'t understand the title (\'neurotic\'), but it sounds a good read. Might ask you about that later.

Chess book you do not have, but want?

\'Is there a book you would like to own, but do not?\' (top) This should read: \'Is there a chess book you would like to own, but do not?\'

I messed, but I am glad I did, because there are some great recommendations here. And I do find myself wandering into other parts of the shop when I go looking for chess books.

Keep posting on the chess books, though. Is there a book you have heard of that you really want?

Baggy_Gee, I\'m wiring you about fifty cents, in case you see another copy of David Bronstein\'s Zurich International 1953 next time you go to the Brisbane exibition center.

Ah don\'t worry about it, I\'ll buy as many copies as I can find and then give them away. Such great games, and the annotation is simple and in the case of his own games unbiased.-
