Learn from the Legends is a modern classic. ChessCafe chose it as their Book of the Year and IM Jeremy Silman went even further when he wrote: &ldquo I can&rsquo t recall having seen a better book in the last two decades.&rdquo Ten years after the original publication, Quality Chess is proud to offer a revised hardback edition with a new chapter on the latest chess legend, Magnus Carlsen.
