Whether it is "Uncle Fred's Gambit" beating the French Defense mercilessly, or crouching behind a wall of pawns in the "Hedgehog," Jon Edwards has "been there, done that!"
The rigors of high-level chess require extraordinary analytical skills, and The Chess Analyst delivers. Twice winner of the "Best Game of the Year Award," Edwards recounts his experiences in winning the 10th U.S. Correspondence Chess Championship against the best in the country; there are other stories too!
If you want a relative to pick up your expenses while a teenager and then going through college, you can't do better than reading the humorous "Uncle Fred's Gambit."
