Both Natasha and I were delighted to hear that our book “Chess for Life” has won the English Chess Federation 2016 Book of the Year competition. A couple of extracts from the official press release:
This year the judges had to make a choice from four books of high quality in the Short List, but each with widely different subject matter, which made the final choice difficult. The overall high standard is a tribute to the contemporary level of chess publishing. The winner this year is an original book on a subject with wider human interest than just chess playing – the evolution of an ability (chess playing) over a human life time.
Sadler and Regan have between them written an important and original book which is a worthy winner from this year’s Short List of books of high quality.

To celebrate, Natasha and I are starting on a fresh run of our Chess for Life Tour! Our first event is on Thursday 3rd November, 7:30pm at Ealing Chess club. Hopefully see you there!
