This is an excellent book.
I have long been a big fan of Boris Spassky and his games. (World Champion, 1969-1972.) To me, Spassky represents one of the greatest universal players of all time. One can learn a great deal about chess from a close study of his games, Spassky is one of the few players to play open and closed positions with equal elan.
I have this book and found it to be simply outstanding. I just finished annotating Sassky's win vs. Penrose from Palma de Mallorca, 1969. (I am sure that you could find it with any chess engine.)
I highly recommend this book by Soloviev. The games are well chosen, and carefully annotated, some have notes that go to a great depth. There are also many crosstables and good background information on one of the greatest players who ever lived.
