Reviews
  • "Probably the most meticulous and diligent researcher and chess writer around. ...Winter's brilliantly scathing style, always adopted in the noble cause of accuracy, gives his writings a marvelously entertaining as well as instructive quality." - William Harston, The Independent
  • "This is a chess book to enjoy and cherish. Combining scholarly and lively writing, it is uncommonly well-researched and well-written, and has that delightful undercurrent of humor and wit that has always graced Winters writings. Kings, Commoners, and Knaves is a rare chess book, to be treasured for years to come."
