Editorial Reviews

Review

"A large, readable, and entertaining work that comes loaded with anecdotes, insights, and career highlights that will put the reader inside the heart of the action. Exciting games are accented with great notes. The book itself is beautifully bound in a durable cover, with large, readable type in an attractive font, with generous diagrams that make following the action easy. Fighting Chess succeeds as a biographical sketch, as a games collection, and as a record of comparative achievements in American chess." — Chess Cafe.com

"Very instructive." —Chess.com

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Nakamura is without question one the most feared attackers the chess world has ever known. I bought this book hoping to get some insight in Nakamura's thinking process, as well as to get some peek at his coming of age in the chess world. I suppose I was looking also for a sort of a biography. But I guess i should have realized since the book was not authored by the man himself, it wouldn't be about his life. in any case, if you like the art of attack prsented in an entertaining way, Nakamura's are among the best. Enjoy
