From the Back Cover:

Few players have captured the public imagination like the former World Champion Mikhail Tal. With his unique attacking style, he dazzled the chess world on the way to becoming the youngest ever World Champion (at that time) in 1960, winning friends around the world for both his entertaining play and engaging personality. Although Tal's championship reign was brief, he continued to delight his many fans with brilliant sacrificial games until his death in 1992. In this book Grandmaster Joe Gallagher takes a fresh look at Tal's games and career, focusing on the previously neglected period from 1975 to 1992 during which he played some of his most accomplished chess. Despite periodic bouts of ill-health Tal occupied a place in the world's top ten for most of this period, winning any top-class events and securing dozens of wonderful victories, many of which are annotated in detail here. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 224 pages, diagrams)
