A fresh stock of The King by J.H. Donner

We recently reprinted The King by J.H. Donner.

This book will not make you a better chess player, so you can safely neglect this post if that is the only thing you are interested in.

But Richard James and the late Mike Fox said it was "A magnificent portrait of a remarkable man, as well as on of the funniest chess books ever written."

The Washington Post called it a "masterpiece".

John Saunders said, in British Chess Magazine, it would be his "only desert island chess book."

Mark Donlan wrote, in Chess Horizons, that it made him laugh aloud, an added: "it is the only chess book that similarly amused my wife."

Believe us: The King is the best book we ever published.
