Play Like A Girl!, the first book of its kind, is a collection of tactical positions from the world's best women chessplayers. Profiled players range from Hungary's Judit Polgar, the best woman chessplayer in history, to Abby Marshall, the teenager who became the first American girl to win the Denker High School Tournament of Champions.
Chess lovers of all levels can enjoy the puzzles, as the difficulty goes all the way from one-move killer blows to deep, complex combinations. The crushing tactics in this book show that "playing like a girl" is something to aspire to!
When you purchase Play Like a Girl!, you're also helping charity. All author royalties go to the Tucson-based non-profit organization, 9Queens. The book is edited by two-time U.S. Women's Champion Jennifer Shahade, a co-founder of 9Queens.
Jennifer Shahade is a two-time U.S. Women's Champion and a Woman Grandmaster. Jennifer is the author of Chess Bitch: Women in the Ultimate Intellectual Sport, which profiles the lives of many of the players featured in this book, and co-author of Marcel Duchamp: The Art of Chess.
In 2005, Shahade and Jean Hoffman co-founded 9 Queens (9Queens.org), a non-profit organization that promotes chess among those who are most needed of its benefits.
