The book contains an essay on the life and work of the talented Soviet grandmaster and writer
A. Kotov. Chess games with comments by Kotov are selected and grouped by topic (opening,
combination, tactical ideas, defense, etc.) so that the book is not only a monograph about an
outstanding chess player, but also a kind of textbook on the conduct of a chess game. The
compiler pursued the same goal, including, as an appendix, the most remarkable chapters from
A. Kotov's book "Secrets of a Chess Player's Thinking".
