New Book I just picked up "Pal Benko: My Life, Games and Compositions" by GM Pal Benko and IM Jeremy Silman. You learn about Benko's life while playing thru 138 annotated games covering 400 pages, There's a opening Survey by IM John watson covering about 100 pages and a 100 pages with 300 of Benko's problems and compositions. The book contains many photo's and stories I've never seen before, it's a wonderful book.

Good tip thanks baseline. I'm always on the lookout for a good chess book. Gameknot forum is a great place to get tips on good books (and ones to avoid).

the only bad thing is Benko's book retails for $45.00 in hardback! but then again its 667 pages like getting two books in one.

Benko Book Could you please post the isbn number so I can order it directly from my bookseller? He's really good about getting chessbooks for me and I pay no shipping. Thanks for any help.
