About the Author:

David Levy is an International Chess Master and a prolific chess writer.

His computing career began at Glasgow University, where he taught Algol programming and Artificial Intelligence during the early 1970s. He is widely regarded as one of the world's leading authorities on computer chess, and is Chairman of a London-based software house which specializes in programming intelligent games.
