The book is a thorough and analytical review of the life of Jose Raul Capablanca and his years as a child prodigy, aspirant to the crown, monarch of chess and eternal challenger. The drama and complexities of his human side contrast with the definition of 'the chess machine', as he was usually known. This is the most complete and thorough work about this figure and opens new fields of interpretation about his life and his contribution to chess.
Miguel A. Sanchez, a well known chess journalist and historian in Cuba, he has written several other books about Cuban contemporary history. He lives in Bayside, New York.
