9780805024265: The Polgar Sisters: Training or Genius? (Batsford Chess Library)

This is the story of Susan, Sofia, and Judith Polgar, three Hungarian sisters who have taken the chess world by storm. All three achieved Grandmaster results in their teens, the youngest, Judith, ousting Bobby Fischer in 1992 as the youngest Grandmaster in history. All have won against male professionals twice their age. This is the story of their remarkable rise to the highest levels of world chess. Along the way they have had to overcome not only many top players in competition, but also hypocrisy, sexism, and resentment over the success of their parents' individualistic educational approach.
