Fighting Chess with Hikaru Nakamura - Progress in Chess - Karsten Müller, Raymund Stolze

OCR'd PDF (9.3 mb):

The first book to focus on United States Chess Champion.

Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura's fascinating journey to the top of world chess is documented in this look at his life and career. Hikaru was not a typical child prodigy, and at his first Junior World championships didn’t even make it onto the winners' podium. He won a World Cup medal at the age of 13 and at the age of 24, he is still surprising the chess world. He is considered by many to be the greatest American chess player since the legendary Bobby Fischer, and this book features a prologue penned by Lubosh Kavalek, Bobby's insider and supporter at the match of the century against Boris Spasski in 1972.

Thanks to andrzejka and to PaulieD! sunny

Editorial Reviews
"A large, readable, and entertaining work that comes loaded with anecdotes, insights, and career highlights that will put the reader inside the heart of the action. Exciting games are accented with great notes. The book itself is beautifully bound in a durable cover, with large, readable type in an attractive font, with generous diagrams that make following the action easy. Fighting Chess succeeds as a biographical sketch, as a games collection, and as a record of comparative achievements in American chess." — Chess

"Very instructive." —
