The Human Comedy of Chess : Hans Ree :
Sort order. May 08, Carl Palmateer rated it it was amazing. A fun book on chess and too many forget that chess is fun. Not just the game itself but everything around it. There are a few games and positions mixed into this but it is mainly about the players and the stories and the people. Its a much quicker read than what it took me.

A symbol of the modern age. This could easily be expanded into a full-length book; when I was active, it seemed to me that every Russian and Eastern European player drank to excess, not that it affected their chess much; and every nationality could boast of their hard-drinking chess star. Come to think of it, several of Ree's Dutch compatriots have been champion drinkers.

Ree delights in eccentrics. It turns out that Diemer was also a committed Nazi and believer in Nostradamus. Diemer sent out some 10, Nostradamus letters, claiming to have cracked his code by assigning numbers to each alphabetical character used by Nostradamus. In another column, Ree gives his impressions of and stories about Johan Barendregt, who was a strong Dutch player and, incidentally, another chess journalist. By trade, Barendregt was a psychologist and professor; he was also a hypnotist, and attempted to improve Ree's chess play by means of hypnosis unsuccessfully.
Interestingly, Ree played eight World Champions and spent time with many of them. There are chapters on Anand very brief , Botvinnik vs. Smyslov, Carlsen, Euwe, Fischer, and Karpov vs. One of the best and most extensive essays is about Max Euwe, with a number of stories and details that I haven't seen elsewhere. The variety of 'My Chess' is part of its appeal, and Ree addresses subjects as different as Nabakov, chess cafes, John Cage, various tournaments and clubs, chess in Venice, Donald Duck no, this isn't about Magnus Carlsen, but I should note that in a recent interview Carlsen called Donald Duck comics his favourite non-chess books , and 'The Nose' don't ask.
The Tartakower essay is absorbing and full of surprising details; hopefully someday someone will undertake a biography of this legendary figure.
