International Master Tibor Károlyi was Hungarian Champion in 1984 and is renowned as an author and trainer. He won the Guardian Book of the Year prize in 2007 and coached Peter Leko until he became a world class grandmaster. In this book, the author drives you through the very rich chess career of Jan Timman while interviewing him. This unique concept makes the book easy to read and gives the reader some inside information about what is happening also off the board, things you normally don’t get to know about.

“Jan Timman, with whom I had myself countless hardfought, bitter and very interesting battles, has made quite a name in the chessworld. Not only was he at the very top, the best of the West, as they called him, he also had a very creative, romantic and principled playing style. Jan always has been an icon for me, I still remember his famous endgame vs Velimirovic or the

classic ‘the art of analysis’ he wrote. Never a dull moment in Jan’s games and this book refl ects this very well. Although this book has a high chess level it’s also a fun read with a lot of diversity, it’s a nice mix of stories, studies and topchess, what else does a chesslover want? :)&rdquo
