Reshevsky shot to fame as a child prodigy and Vol. 1 covers his early career up to the mid 1940's when Reshevsky was established as one of the leading contenders for the world chess crown. His later games are published as Reshevsky's Best Games - Volume 2
This book was one of my first and was one of the few chess books I actually read; it got used to the point that the cover fell off. Reshevsky has always been my favorite player because his style was one without eccentricities or prejudices and his games were simple and clear cut. I can’t fathom the play of Karpov or Shirov or Anand but I could always relate to Reshevsky's play.
