    Women in the Ultimate Intellectual Game
    Catalog Code: B0004SI

    Chess Bitch, written by the 2004 U.S. Woman's Chess Champion, is an eye-opening account of how today's young female chess players are successfully knocking down the doors to this traditionally male game, infiltrating the male-owned sporting subculture of international chess, and giving the phrase ''play like a girl'' a whole new meaning.
