A year inside the chess world

244 pages, paperback, Chess Evolution, 1. edition 2016

Incl. Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

English chess Grandmaster Danny Gormally finds his life at a crossroads. Bored with Berlin defences, sick of the endless grind of the English chess circuit, he tries his luck on the European scene.

In this at times hilarious and tragic account, Gormally shares the inner workings of the chess world - a world riven with insecurities, strange social customs and petty rivalries, while casting his analytical eye even on topics as disparate as eccentric waiters, strange Amsterdam zoos and inspiring mountain passes. It’s a story you won’t want to miss.
