In Black and White is probably the most honest autobiography ever published by a chess grandmaster. The Dutchman, born in 1956, covers his rise to the chess elite, his insecurities, and the difficulties he encountered. The highlight of his career was his qualification for the Candidates Matches, only four steps away from the World Championship. He won a game but lost the match against Gata Kamsky. The Dutch edition was published in 2011 and has reached cult status. It was very well received by fans and reviewers - and with the English translation will finally get a well-deserved wider audience. Paul van der Sterren (1956) was a professional chess player for over twenty years. At the peak of his career, the Dutch grandmaster qualified for the Candidate Matches for the World Championship – and was only four victories away from the World Title. He is the bestselling author of Fundamental Chess Openings (Gambit Publishers). In 2023 New In Chess will publish his books: Mindful Chess and In Black and White - a spiritual and a chess autobiography.
