I suspect Mr.B,Larsen may be turning in his grave upon learning this.

I feel I should point out that Larsen won his match against the combined talents of Spassky and Stein 2.5-1.5

He recovered amazingly well from the 1 b3 miniature.

I think he would be pleased that this book has been published.

Yes perhaps he was more proud of his powers of recovery than whatever he felt over that particular loss.
