Todays greatest young stars, ranging from ten to seventeen years old some perhaps to be future world champions present a fascinating look at the world of chess. Learn from their stories of successes, failures, world travels, and love of the game. They show off their best moves and admit to their most embarrassing blunders. This basic chess primer features diagrams, explanations, and winning ideas written for kids by their prodigal peers. Features Jordy Mont-Reynaud (14), who smashed Fischers record to become the youngest USCF Master, to be eclipsed by Vinay Bhat (13), and then Hikaru Nakamura, a 10-year-old superstar, and others.
