  fredthebear: Black's last move 32..Qf5 is a double attack, threatening to capture White's loose Rb1 and infiltrate the h3 square followed by a devastating discovered check.

"The Fireside Book of Chess" by Irving Chernev & Fred Reinfeld contains unique, action-packed games. It's loaded with stories and chess trivia, a very enjoyable book befitting of it's title!

The Fireside Book of Chess was one of the first chess books I ever read, and remains one of my all-time favorites. A truly delightful read, I found it in my local library and I remember being fascinated by the games and stories.
