Having just defeated Botvinnik for the World Crown the new champion Tigran Petrosian travelled to Hollywood to compete in this glamorous top level competition organised and financed by millionaire cellist and chess devotee Gregor Piatigorsky. This event resulted in some superb chess by the world's best, while the notes by the players themselves, including Petrosian and Keres, grant unique insights into the workings of the best chess minds. This is one of the great tournament books of all time.
