If you do not yet have a chess rating and are not particularly interested in competing in chess tournaments then this is the book for you! By dint of some carefully selected games by masters, grandmasters and the world's elite, Ray Keene has constructed a self testing rating system which enables the reader to gauge their rating strength. If you do not wish to take the tests simply play over and enjoy fine games by Boris Spassky, Bent Larsen, Mikhail Tal and Alexander Alekhine.
