Finition du livre excellente comme toujours avec McFarland.

As is typical of McFarland's top-notch standards, included are complete crosstables, sources for, and locations of the games; bibliography (both of works about Fine and by Fine); list of people interviewed; opening, annotators, source, and general indexes; etc., etc., etc. If the author were to say Fine sneezed during a game, there would be three sources for the incident, as well as an entry for "sneeze" in the index. It goes without saying that the hardcover book is of top production quality.
The one disappointment -- and that is speaking relatively -- is that, unlike the biography of Burn, Fine as a person is not considered. The book concentrates on the games, not the man. There is very little material about what kind of person he was, his extra-chess career and life, and so on. But that aside, it is an excellent book.
The book has almost all of his serious games most are annotated in English not with Informat symbols. Many are done by Fine himself. You can learn from these games,
also there are short bios of all the greats of the era. How many knew that Reinfeld was truly a great player? There is a great deal of biographical information, pictures, and loads of information about the individual tournaments.
It is great book loving produced on glossy paper. It is a bit pricy, but you won't regret it.
