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

"This is the third edition of a book which has won a number of awards, and I can't help but add my praise.
Tal's Super Rooks vs Two Minor Pieces is an absolute joy to read, but my favourite has to be Alekhine's mastery of positions with Queen and Rook vs Queen and Rook. Marin picks out seven examples of Alekhine's mastery of such positions and does a fantastic job of picking out typical ideas and themes. I've never given such endings much thought so a chapter like this gives you a great feeling of learning something fresh!
Absolutely recommended - a true 5-star book!"
