Bad Translation and Editing,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zurich 1953: 15 Contenders for the World Chess Championship (Paperback)
I ordered this book for my boyfriend, who belongs to the US Chess Federation and plays postal in the CCLA. He has accumulated over 400 chess books over the last 50 years. When he started the games in this book, he noticed right away that some moves were missing, that some diagrams did not reflect the game annotated, and that the annotations were incorrect. As most chess masters, he analyses the games and studies the annotations. This book was so poorly edited, and obviously not translated correctly, that he does not want to waste any more time with the other games in the book. I wrote an email to the publisher, Russell Enterprises, apprising them of the editorial errors, but did not receive a reply.
