John Donaldson

A good example of how chess literature has progressed can be seen in noted correspondence player Jon Edward's new book SACKING the CITADEL. This work is light years more comprehensive and focused than earlier treatments of the theme.

About the Author

Jon Edwards won the 10th United States Correspondence Championship in 1997 and the 8th North American Invitational Correspondence Chess Championship in 1999. He became a Senior International Master (SIM) in 1999. His ICCF rating of 2580 placed him in the top 200 correspondence chess players worldwide. Jon is an accomplished chess teacher and author. His book, The Chess Analyst (1999) chronicled his success in the US championship. His photographically based chess primer, Teach Yourself Visually: Chess (2006), is helping many thousands of young learners.
