'They were no longer partners keen to test out their abilities in lighthearted play; they were enemies bent on each other's destruction.'

When it is discovered that the reigning world chess champion, Mirko Czentovic, is on board a cruiser heading for Buenos Aires, a fellow passenger challenges him to a game. Czentovic easily defeats him, but during the rematch a mysterious Austrian, Dr B., intervenes and, to the surprise of everyone, helps the underdog obtain a draw. When, the next day, Dr B. confides in a compatriot travelling on the same ship and decides to reveal the harrowing secret behind his formidable chess knowledge, a chilling tale of imprisonment and psychological torment unfolds.

Stefan Zweig's last and most famous story, 'The Game of Chess' was written in exile in Brazil and explores its author's anxieties about the situation in Europe following the rise of the Nazi regime. The tale is presented here in a brand-new translation, along with three of the master storyteller's most acclaimed novellas: 'Twenty-four Hours in the Life of a Woman', 'The Invisible Collection' and 'Incident on Lake Geneva'.

This is a very simple book, written for those who just learned the basic rules of chess and are looking for a light, fast and easy to understand reading. / This book was written so that beginners of all levels can take a first step. Anyone can read this book, as some notion of the basic rules of the game are enough to understand it. Everything was done so that a nine years old child can enjoy the book alone, without adult help. / There is no theory. The book has only practical tests. / The book is based on diagrams, which work in pairs: on a page, a figure proposes a test; on the next page, another figure shows the response. Simple as that! / You do NOT need a chessboard to use the book: just sit down in a comfortable armchair and flip through the pages quietly (in an airplane, a restaurant, a living room, a taxi, a waiting room, on the subway or in your bed before sleeping). / You do NOT need to know the algebraic notation in this book: the answers are shown in the diagrams directly, by means of arrows. However, gradually this notation is presented because in the future you will read more advanced books that use it. / Attack and defense situations are here: so, whenever you are playing, in your turn you will be used to examine the chessboard in search of attacking opportunities and risks that require defense maneuvers. / Less is more! A book which is intended to be a first reading on chess must be small and must demand just a pair of hours. So, this book has just 130 pages and 60 tests selected and planned to induce a gradual learning process. / The problems are not difficult, especially the first twenty. It is expected that you can hit 80% of the book's problems, if not all. Gradually, very common tactical ideas, such as double attacks and discovered checks, will be presented naturally. On average you will take a minute per test. / At the end of the book, your vision of the game has started to improve, and so you can continue your training with other more advanced books (there is a list of reading suggestions for beginners on the last page of the book). / The only requirement is: never turn a page before you set your own guess! The book will only work if you actually try to solve each of the tests. / Thanks for your interest: I hope this book will help you to play well. / WARNING: this book is useful just for very beginners.
