Inspiring Book for Juniors! Oct 12, 2006
Learning about the life and games of the then thirteen year old grandmaster was very inspiring. He became a grandmaster at even a younger age than Bobby Fischer. I enjoy reading about and going over young champions games such as Fischer, Junge, and Reshevsky (I found some of their great games in "Unbeatable Chess Lessons for Juniors", another inspiring book for kids). I recommend "Wonderboy" for adults and juniors alike!
A future world champion! Mar 21, 2006
As the director of marketing of World Chess Network (http://wcn.tentonhammer.com/) I highly recommend this book to the chess community. Magnus Carlson is a very serious successor of Gary Kasparov and I will not be surprise to see him as a chess world champion in a few years. A very fascinating chess player and a very good book about him! Let see what the future holds.
