"G" rated version of Jennifer Shahade's Book
on December 11, 2005
A self/family bio on how the west was won, opps I mean how chess was won! Rather interesting and well written. This book is suitable for young readers as this is a toned down mellow-yellow version in many ways of Jennifer Shahade's new book also on an insight into the world of women's chess (I would rate that PG13).
The Polar sisters have done a lot for chess, helping women's self esteme and respect in a traditionally male dominated sport. However, it is a big far fetched to say the Polgar's have "Changed the Game of Chess". Influenced in a positive way yes, "Changed" no.
This book along with Shahade's book are both to be recommended!
