World Champions at Their Best (1), by IM Jeremy Silman. This module is the first in a series that represent Silman's best work ever and which have the earmarks of becoming classics. This first module will cover the period from the first World Championship match in 1834 between La Bourdonnais and MacDonnell up to the Steinitz era in the 1880's. Compared to the modern eras, there is a dearth of literature and analysis regarding pre-twentieth century championship chess. Silman breaks new ground with much original analysis and includes a wealth of historical facts. Utilizing Chess Mentor's features to their limits, Silman has produced this module with learning utility for novices as well as International Masters. No one who owns Chess Mentor will want this series missing from their library of modules.
