A signed hardback book by one of the famous Polgar sisters.

A large format (18cm x 26cm or 7x10 inches), signed and numbered hardcover edition. This special hardcover edition will be limited to 200 numbered copies. Each will be signed and dated by Sofia making it the ultimate chess gift or collectors item.

The chess triumphs of the Polgar sisters are legendary. Now, in this very special book, Sofia Polgar tells her own exceptional story: from her development as a prodigy and remarkable tournament successes to her eventually settling down, with chess occupying a lesser role as she raised a family.

Sofia presents many of her games, each with her own brand of fireworks. Clear, straightforward annotations allow the reader to appreciate her accomplishments on the board, while away from the board, her many personal memoirs complete the picture.

There are many photographs, many of which have never been previously published. They nicely complement the chronicle of both her meteoric rise in the chess world and her loving family who encouraged her at every turn.

What is not generally known is that Sofia Polgar is also a gifted artist, a talented painter. Dozens of examples of her brilliant creativity on canvas are featured throughout this large format book. These paintings are presented in full colour and on special matte paper to enhance the readers viewing enjoyment.

From Judit Polgars Foreword: I wish the readers a pleasant journey on this artistic excursion that provides great chess lessons while also offering nourishment for the soul. Sofia Polgar: Amazing Artist Dangerous Tactician is part autobiography, part art gallery and part tactical textbook, but above all it is a very special, unique look at the life and games of an artist both on and off the board.

Hardback, 288 pages.
