"This book is wonderful! The juxtaposition of chess and psychology is fascinating, insightful and inspiring. I found myself taking notes while reading to remember key points. When I was finished, I had a page and half of notes and quotes! I look forward to reading this book again to make sure I didn't miss anything, and to solidify the thoughts and ideas in my mind. That is the mark of a good book to me, one that I would read again… You do not need to be a chess player or even know how to play chess to read this."

John Herron, chess teacher and author of the instructional book, TOTAL CHESS

"Gourmet platter for thought! I found this a fascinating read, at times finding myself nodding frantically in agreement and at others staring quizzically into a corner of the room in contemplation.
For all who believe in the power of chess as a character-buidling tool, you have led us gently along a pathway where we are introduced to our chess nobles in various guises and encouraged to consider our strategies in using them, in various lights... All in all, a pensive, introspective and entertaining read for all enthusiasts of chess as an education tool."

Devina Rishi, Educator
