Praise

Praise for David Shenk’s The Immortal Game

“Elegant . . .  A true page-turner, and a superb introduction to the game of chess.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Clear, elegant, sophisticated and easy to understand. . . . Just the thing to get you in the thrall of this ancient game.” —Los Angeles Times

“Shenk, a spry writer. . . . [Offers] a strong case for the game’s bewitching power.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Shenk’s book possesses an almost inestimable advantage over the many other publications about chess. . . . You can be an utter novice, just a simple wood-pusher, and enjoy the author’s engaging prose, honest self-deprecation (he’s a lousy player), and the charm of his personal connection to the game.” —The Washington Post

“Fresh and fascinating . . . A world-spanning story [Shenk] relates with skill and verve.” —Chicago Sun-Times
