Though still a schoolboy, Nigel Short is already a chess celebrity. He qualified for the national men's final at 11 years old, was joint first in the British Championship at 14 and became the world's youngest IM at 15. His latest achievement is to win the BBC Master Game Tournament in the face of competition from some of the world's leading players. 

Nigel's life both as chess star and as a growing boy are fully described here by his father, David Short, who taught him the moves and accompanied him to all his early tournaments. Some fifty of Nigel's best games, specially chosen by Nigel himself for this volume, are analyzed in detail by George Botterill, former British champion and a leading writer. Leonard Barden, manager of the England junior squad, who picked out nine-year-old Nigel as a future master, explains what makes a prodigy and assesses Nigel's Future.
