Summary

Learn from the Legends is a modern classic. Mihail Marin examines and explains the ideas of the legends who shaped modern chess. 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.
