Frederick Friedel and Christian Hesse wrote an unusual chess book. Its breadth of content ranges from one-on-one meetings with world champions since Euwe to logical chess studies. Frederick is a master storyteller with a passion for the human side of the chess world. Christian presents himself as a narrator of brilliantly constructed mathematical chess puzzles, presenting them as Zen logic in his nascent art form. Their story lines allow you to create a big picture from a few pixels of information with simple thinking. The book is full of stories of both kinds that will leave you wanting more. – Magnus Carlsen, World Champion.
