Grandmaster; David Klass

GrandmasterGrandmaster by David Klass
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Chess as the backdrop to a father/son reconciliation and Lessons Learned - nothing that special about the plot, but using chess was an interesting choice. If you remember the story of Bobby Fisher and his breakdown, the stress he felt as a grandmaster, this will make even more sense. With more students studying chess, a story like this is pretty timely as a reminder that any competition (even one as geeky as chess) can be overamped by both children and parents.
