This is the very first book to focus exclusively on Hikaru Nakamura, the greatest American chess player since the legendary Robert James Fischer. The book features a prologue penned by Lubomir Kavalek, who was none other than „Bobby’s“ insider and supporter at the „match of the century“ against Boris Spasski in 1972.
In this book, grandmaster Karsten Müller from Hamburg and chess journalist Raymund Stolze from Berlin document the 24-year-old’s fascinating journey to the top of world chess. Interestingly, Hikaru was not a typical child prodigy, and at his first Junior World Championships didn’t even make it onto the winners’ podium. Although he won a World Cup medal aged just 13, today he creates true miracles.
