    The very sad story of a forgotten genius of my youth. A well written tribute which could have more tables with results.

  2. Gerard W. (verified owner)

    More than fulfilled my expectations, it gives so much more that the childhood memories I had from this remarkable player.

  3. Philip (verified owner)

    Excellent service from order to delivery; received within a couple of days; and the book is very good too – my wife and I love Slovenia and I am developing an interest in the history of chess in the country!
