I did not get this book from flipkart but from the traditional book store around 20 years back when i was a teenager and new into chess. It was among the very first of the classics and it made me really get into chess. Somehow i lost it and then bought a new one... that too around 15 years back.
It is definitely worth it. Euwe is an excellent teacher. The detail of annoations is amazing and really interesting to follow. you will learn a lot. And opening fundamentals!! I took up ruylopez after reading this book, and it has been a favourite ever since.
the games are basically master vs amateur types wherin euwe points out the subtle mistakes the amateur makes and how the master exploits them. But mind you, these mistakes are not blunders, not even 2-3 move miscalculations leading to loss of material. They are positional gliches which a 2000 rated player makes. But euwe explains them in detail and in an absolute lucid way.
Buy it. and see your game improve.... highly recomended.
If you can get only one book... this is a must.

You have seen the chess terms, Euwe shows how to apply them. An excellent, informative book. I am surprised that it's only available in English Descriptive Notation.
I reuse this book from time to time, as a self study material. I set aside an hour every day to go over one game, which takes about a month to complete. It's a good change from other books which can get very intensive.
