The Maestro

On the advice of my brother I bought The Starcraft Bible by Patrick Howell O'Neil, which gives alot of good background on how Starcraft the game in it's 3 incarnations has become such a huge global success.

One of the great things about the book is that it gives some history on some of the great players of Brood War.

One player who received alot of coverage is Savior, also known as Maestro for his reign as the greatest Starcraft player in the world a few years back. His career was forever tarnished however, when he and several other players were convicted of match-fixing.

On, there is a great, very incisive and indepth story on what made Savior such an incredible player. Although I don't like or appreciate Starcraft or Brood War very much, it is still very inspiring to see someone analyze the moments and strategies of a player to such a level.
