A chess classic signed by the authors Australian grandmaster Ian Rogers and Ralph Shaw ( Terrey’s brother) . The life, writing and games of top Australian chess player Terrey Shaw.

From Hong Kong to Canada, from Yugoslavia to the Philippines; Terrey Shaw represented Australia around the world for almost two decades. In this thoughtful and inspiring book grandmaster Ian Rogers commentates on the game offering insight and explanation for every level of player. The numerous photos help to explain the life of a chess player in the 60s, 70s and 80s. His brother Ralph helps to add family memories of someone who died relatively young.

Shaw became the first Australian to win a medal at the Chess Olympiad and acquired a reputation as a chess ironman; able to concentrate just as well in the eighth hour of a game as the first.

There are general articles by and about Shaw, as well as Shaw’s best games, many with contemporaneous annotations by Shaw’s peers or Shaw himself.
