Biografía del autor
It has been reported that the great violin pedagogue, Ivan Galamian, once described Piatigorsky as the greatest string player of all time. He was an extraordinarily dramatic player. His orientation as a performer was to convey the maximum expression embodied in a piece. He brought a great authenticity to his understanding of this expression. He was able communicate this authenticity because he had had extensive personal and professional contact with many of the great composers of the day. Piatigorsky also enjoyed playing chess. His wife, Jacqueline, was a strong player who played in several US women's championships and represented the United States in the women's Chess Olympiad. In 1963, the Piatigorskys organized and financed a strong international tournament in Los Angeles, won by Paul Keres and Tigran Petrosian. A second Piatigorsky Cup was held in Santa Monica in 1966, and was won by Boris Spassky.

The main body of the book in descriptive notation has games usually with analysis by both players. With all of the players being quite strong (Petrosian, Spassky, Fischer, Larsen etc) this is quite interesting.
This book has many games annotated by both players at many critical moments in the game. It gives an insight about how different strong players think when formulating a plan. In concrete positions, in general, both players calculation and analysis matches. It is more fun to see the differing thoughts in the quiet positions.
Also, a pgn file of all the games is readily available on the internet and if you want to follow the game on your computer or tablet along with the book side by side, it is easy to do that.
Let not the notation keep you from this fantastic book. Dollar for dollar, this is the best money you will spend rather than getting another opening book.
