The special hardback version.

A famous American journalist and a keen chess player recounts his attempts to be better at the game while detailing his entertaining daily life.

An enthralling journey into the world of chess, a story of heartbreak, obsession, failure, and the hunger for greatness.

Sasha Chapin is a victim of chess. Like countless amateurs before him, Albert Einstein, Humphrey Bogart, Marcel Duchamp, the game has consumed his life and his mind.

First captivated by it as a member of his high school chess club, his passion was rekindled during an accidental encounter with chess hustlers on the streets of Kathmandu. In its aftermath, he forgot how to care about anything else. He played at all hours, for weeks at a time. Like a spurned lover, he tried to move on, but he found the game more seductive the more he resisted it.

And so, he thought, if he can't defeat his obsession, he had to succumb to it.All the Wrong Moves traces Chapins rollicking two year journey around the globe in search of glory. Along the way, he chronicles the highs and lows of his fixation, driven on this quest by lust, terror, and the elusive possibility of victory. Stylish, inventive, and laugh out loud funny, All the Wrong Moves is a celebration of the purity, violence, and beauty of the game.

Hardback, 218 pages.
