A Year Inside The Chess World by Daniel Gormally
Insanity, passion and addiction

Paperback, 248 pages

English chess Grandmaster Danny Gormally finds his life at a crossroads. Bored with Berlin defences, sick of the endless grind of the English chess circuit, he tries his luck on the European scene.

In this at times hilarious and tragic account, Gormally shares the inner workings of the chess world — a world riven with insecurities, strange social customs and petty rivalries, while casting his analytical eye even on topics as disparate as eccentric waiters, strange Amsterdam zoos and inspiring mountain passes. It’s a story you won’t want to miss.

5 of 5 A real account of a chess life. December 6, 2018
Reviewer: M Kent from Doncaster, United Kingdom  
The author gives the reader a real sense of how chess players feel not just when playing but with the chess lifestyle as well. This book has both humour and pathos in it. This book should be an 18th birthday present for juniors who think that chess is a career for them. A very enjoyable book. The only negative aspect is the number of typos that have not been proof read out, the publisher should have done better.
