    Absolutely great book! Very well researched, professionally written, historically interesting and intriguing, and with good tips for learning and improving. And, all done with a warm and fun touch. The authors are able to write with great credibility because the whole family, besides being proven tournament-winning players, has a great knowledge, long history, and love for the game
