Susan Polgar & Paul Truong

Susan Polgar provides an insider's view of the lives of the Polgar sisters, herself, Sofia and Judit, each with her own goals and aspirations. She takes readers through the incredible development of the three sisters as they pursued their dreams: becoming chess prodigies, growing into contenders, winning World titles and Olympiad gold medals, ending the Soviet dominance in women's chess, breaking through the gender and age barriers, and revolutionizing the game.

Each sister has one chapter of the book devoted to her with career biography, ten annotated games and a best combinations section. Readers will also be privy to the thoughts and feelings the sisters experienced during major triumphs and disappointments, as Susan shares their most joyous moments and biggest heartbreaks. Another important issue covered is the strict but ultimately successful training techniques used by the Polgar sisters in their chess evolution.

Susan Polgar is four times Women's World Chess Champion and now runs the Susan Polgar Foundation promoting chess throughout the U.S.A.

Published 2005, hardback, 320 pages.
