Joe Gallagher, "The Magic of Mikhail Tal"
Everyman Chess | ISBN: 1857442660 | First edition (January 1, 2022) | DJVU | 224 pages | 1.9 MB

Few players have captured the public imagination like the former World Champion Mikhail Tal. With his unique attacking style, he dazzled the chess world on the way to becoming the youngest ever World Champion (at that time) in 1960, winning friends around the world for both his entertaining play and engaging personality. Although Tal's championship reign was brief, he continued to delight his many fans with brilliant sacrificial games until his death in 1992. In this book Grandmaster Joe Gallagher takes a fresh look at Tal's games and career, focusing on the previously neglected period from 1975 to 1992 during which he played some of his most accomplished chess. Despite periodic bouts of ill-health Tal occupied a place in the world's top ten for most of this period, winning any top-class events and securing dozens of wonderful victories, many of which are annotated in detail here.

Starting Out: Modern Benoni
Publisher: Everyman Chess; 1.00 edition (February 1, 2022) | English | ISBN:1857443667 | 176 pages | PDF | 7.33 MB

Ideal for those wanting to understand the basics of the Modern Benoni. The Modern Benoni is one of Black's most ambitious and audacious defenses to the queen's pawn opening, and it has been used with devastating effect by such legends as Mikhail Tal, Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. From the very start Black creates an exceptional imbalance in the position, one which leads to dynamic play and gives Black real chances to seize the initiative. Both players must be fearless in their approach, as hesitation in the Modern Benoni often leads to disaster!
Game Physics Engine Development (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Interactive 3D Technology)

Ian Millington, "Game Physics Engine Development (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Interactive 3D Technology)"
Morgan Kaufmann | ISBN 012369471X | March 7, 2022 | 456 Pages | PDF | 3.3MB

Simulating physics helps cutting-edge games distinguish themselves by making virtual objects behave as we expect them to in the real world. Physics engines are the software programs that run these simulations. Building an engine is difficult, however. There are a large number of new developers (and hobbyists) coming into this market who need help through this complex process. Current introductory books are inadequate; they don't bring enough real-world programming experience to the task. There is a need for an introductory book on game physics with solid coding guidance but which limits the math content. Ian Millington brings his extensive professional programming experience to this problem. He has developed games since 1987, has studied AI and mathematics at the PhD level, and founded Mindlathe Ltd., a company that designed and built commercial physics engines. Physics Engine Development carefully describes each step in the creation of a robust, usable physics engine. It introduces the mathematical concepts in a clear and simple manner, keeping to high school level topics and building a physics code library as it goes. Each new concept is explained in diagrams and code to make sure that even the most novice of game programmers understands. The companion CD-ROM includes the source code for a complete physics engine of commercial quality.
