Cathy Forbes examines the relationship between the Polgars' early, demanding education and their outstanding chess success and incorporates a selection of their best games.

This is the story of three young Hungarian girls who have taken the chess world by storm. All three achieved Grandmaster results in their teens. All three have won international competitions ahead of male professionals twice their age. The youngest, by the age of fourteen, had broken every record in sight and become a favoured heir(ess) to Kasparov's world title. They are sisters. Their names are Susan, Sofia and Judit Polgar.

Cathy Forbes charts the remarkable rise of the Polgar sisters to the highest levels of world chess. On the way they have had to overcome many top Grandmasters over the board, but some of their hardest battles have been fought elsewhere as they have struggled against hypocrisy, sexism, and resentment over the success of their parent's individualistic educational approach.

Women's International Master Cathy Forbes is one of England's leading female players, and represented her country in 1990 both at the World Championship Interzonal tournament in Malaysia and as a member of the Olympiad team at Novi Sad in Yugoslavia, where she faced the Polgars in the England v Hungary match.
