The Sorcerer's ApprenticeI am delighted to tell you that one of our books has won the Guardian 2009 Chess Book of the Year Award. The Sorcerer's Apprentice by David Bronstein and Tom Fürstenberg has won the prestigious prize of this English daily newspaper. The judges, GM Danny King and novelist/chessplayer Ronan Bennet explained their choice as follows: "This is an unusual, personal, inspirational and endearing book, a mix of anecdote, musing and insight" Our special congratulations go to David Bronstein's widow Tatiana Boleslavskaya, daughter of grandmaster Isaak Boleslavsky who met David as a young girl, who wrote a moving In Memoriam in the book. I would also like to thank Tom Fürstenberg, who composed the book and kindly granted us the right to publish this Revised & Updated Edition. Everyone who knew Bronstein knows how difficult Tom's task has been. New In Chess is proud to have published this fantastic book.
