International Master Tibor Károlyi was Hungarian Champion in 1984 and is renowned as an author and trainer. He won the Guardian Book of the Year prize in 2007 and coached Peter Leko until he became a world class grandmaster.
In this book, the author drives you through the very rich chess career of the 6th Women World Champion Nona Gaprindashvili while interviewing her. This unique concept makes the book easy to read and gives the reader some inside information about what is happening also off the board, things you normally don't get to know about.
Ketevan Arakhamia world junior champion and Women's world championship candidate on Nona Gaprindashvili:
"She inspired me, and many other Georgian girls, to become chessplayers. Many times, when I was very young, I read a fascinating book on Nona's lifestory. I feel privileged and lucky to have met one of my heroes, to have played her and spent time off the board with her. I appreciate her kindness towards me over the years and think of her fondly".
