The Fireside Book of Chess
Compiled by Phony Benoni
--*--

To those of us from a certain generation, this book (published by Irving Chernev and Fred Reinfeld in 1949) was an opportunity to take a break from the serous side of chess. STories, trivia,, combinations, endgame studies, problems, and especially the games collected here, presented by the authors with contagious enthusiasm, provided a memorable experience -- as shown by the number of kibitzes which begin "If first saw this game in the FIreside Book of Chess..."

As the book nears its seventieth anniversary it can probably be criticized out of date -- plus, there's the dreaded Descriptive Notation. But I tell you - if this sort of book is appealing, you could do a lot worse.
