Four stars for Steinitz book

We recently updated our pages about GM Tim's book Steinitz in London. GM Matthew Sadler awarded it four stars in New In Chess, while other reviewers hailed the biography as "a fantastic read" and "a milestone in the literature of chess history." Our historical series indicates serious issues with the scores of several Steinitz games from the 1880s and 1890s.
