Collections of Chess Games

These are often books about chess tournaments or chess championships, or the best games of individual players. I am only recommending my favorites. Use the links to check out what others have said about these books at Amazon.

Please note that only the first of these would be helpful for children or absolute beginners (and, unfortunately, it is out of print and expensive). Still, the fastest way to improve? To play through game collections just like these!
