From the back cover
This book of a strong tournament, is more than just a games collection. When its participants are the world's strongest players, the tournament as a whole represents a step forward in the development of chess creativity. David Bronstein ventured this evaluation of Zurich 1953 just 3 years after the event. Most knowledgeable chess players now rate this tournament the greatest since WWII and the possibly of all time.
Almost all the games were hotly contested and many are masterpieces of the first rank.
Advanced players will wnat this book for the games alone. Beginning and intermediate players concerned with instruction. You will find David Bronstein's annotations not only perceptive and thorough, but also a veritable textbook on how to play the middle game.
