I'm not really a history or war buff but this had me fixed. The reader helps to keep the pace going.
I enjoyed it.
Very interesting subject and well presented - could have been a little quicker to get to the point but I managed to get to the end.
Very good reading!
The author presents a great potted history of chess orientated around the Immortal Game - a game which occurred between the wars. I found the book great to listen to and very informative.
I would recommend it to anyone who has a general interest in chess.
Just a brief comment about this audiobook.
It would have been nicer if Lance had done the speaking himself but I found it very interesting and even listened to it more than once! If you are interested in getting a view on how to deal with life's problems and still come back better than ever then this book is for you. Also If you are a cyclist, which I am, it is an interesting insight into one of the greatest cyclists ever to sit on a saddle. I would recommend it to most of my friends.
The book is quite interesting but the voice of the reader just grated on my very badly. It sounded like it was read in a outside toilet! Any way I did listen to the whole book and I learn't quite a lot.
