Jose Raul Capablanca: A Chess Biography by Miguel Sanchez

About the Book
This is the most complete and thorough biography of José Raúl Capablanca, one of the greatest players in the history of chess. Beginning with his family background, birth, childhood and introduction to the game in Cuba, it examines his life and play as a young man; follows his evolution as a player and rise to prominence, first as challenger and then world champion; his loss of the title to Alekhine and his efforts to recapture the championship in the last years of his too-short life. What emerges is a portrait of a complex man with far-ranging interests and concerns, in stark contrast to his robotic reputation as “the chess machine.”

Meticulously researched, utilizing many sources available only in Capablanca’s home country, it puts truth to legend regarding a man who stood astride the chess world in of its most dynamic and dramatic eras. Numerous games and diagrams complement the text, as do a wealth of photographs.

About the Author(s)
Miguel A. Sanchez, a journalist and historian in Cuba, also wrote several other books about Cuban contemporary history. He lives in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida.

Thanks to latrommi610, to Miroslav and to jiri for this very important biography of one of the truly great chess world champions (along with Alekhine, Botvinnik, Fischer, Kasparov...) sunny

The original link is still alive, but it leads to a VERY bulky PDF version (77.9 mb),
The link to the small version is broken, so here is the small version I have (6.7 mb):

Of course, one could argue forever about the identity of the greatest world champions, but it is always good to rely on research and data. And modern research shows that among all the world champions, it was Capablanaca's moves which resembled most the moves of today's super-computers, rated well over 3000 Elo! Exclamation
