Product Details

The first book to focus on united States Chess Champion Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura's fascinating journey to the top of world chess is documented in this look at his life and career. Hikaru was not a typical child prodigy, and at his first Junior World championships didn't even make it onto the winners' podium. He won a World Cup medal at the age of 13 and at the age of 24, he is still surprising the chess world. He is considered by many to be the greatest American chess player since the legendary Bobby Fischer, and this book features a prologue penned by Lubosh Kavalek, Bobby's insider and supporter at the match of the century against Boris Spasski in 1972.

  • Karsten Muller is a German Grandmaster and the coauthor of Fundamental Chess Endings and How to Play Chess Endgames. He finished third in the German Championship in 1996, and was runner-up in 1997.
