Mir Sultan Khan was the most remarkable and amazing chess player who ever lived. He was by far the first grandmaster strength player from Asia. He came from a country where chess, as we know it, wasn't played. He had no book knowledge or training. he knew nothing of opening theory of studies of the game. He was brought from India as a servant and instructed by his master to play chess. Yet, he quickly established himself as one of the strongest players in the world, having defeated Capablanca, Rubsinstein, Florh, Tarkakower, Bernstein, Marshall and many other of the world's leading chess players.

Sultan Khan won many games in the endgame. He often traded queens in the opening. His games lasted a long time. He defeated Capablanca in the endgame when Capablanca was thought of as being unbeatable and the strongest endgame player in the world. He salvaged a draw in endgames where he appeared to be hopelessly lost against Euwe and Rubinstein.

All the games from Descriptive Notation have been converted into Algebraic Notation in the appendix at the end of the book.
