Keith Arkell

The Autobiography of a Grandmaster

Keith Arkell is one of Britain's busiest and best-known chess Grandmasters, (320 standard-play tournaments won to date) and having recently reached his half-century was prompted to take a backward look and reflect on how he got to where he is today.

This is the resulting book, in which he details his personal odyssey with a disarming candour and honesty, recounting many of his highs and lows, fears and phobias, triumphs and tragedies, as well as recalling some of his memorable games, each a little landmark along the way.

The book includes:
70 lightly annotated, easy-to-follow, instructive games.
200 chessboard diagrams.
45 photographs, some in full colour.
6 cross-tables

"I was impressed by Keith's appetite for the game: his determination, mental toughness in bad positions, fighting sprit and his formidable endgame technique, all qualities that, undiminished by the passing of time, he still brings to the board today". Michael Adams.
"Few of his (Keith's) adversaries on the British chess scene are able to withstand his filigree attention to detail and immense determination to win in any endgame he can create". Ray Keene The Times.

"If there has been a chess book quite like this one, with its particular combination of perceptive personal insights and game collection, then I don't recall it. It could be unique; you be the judge". Bob Jones Western Daily Press.

Published 2012, softback, 123 pages.
