Chess books

Jan 6, 2011, 7:13 AM |

I'm presently reading King's Gambit by Paul Hoffman.  I have some other chess books -- the names of which I don't recall right now -- but I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for good books on chess.  I'll find my list later and post the others I have, but I'm looking for some good reads on chess -- not how-to's, but more about the history and development of the game and notable players.

Thanks in advance for your help.
