The Kings of New York - Two Additional Reviews


Two new reviews of Michael Weinreb's The Kings of New York have recently appeared. Dave Marcus of Newsday.com has written a review, as has Gary Buiso of Brooklyn's Courier Life Publications.

I haven't yet finished the book nor written my review, but my preliminary thought is that pre-teens should NOT read the book, due to the occasional "salty" language used, but parents and coaches SHOULD read the book due to the insight Weinreb provides regarding the internal pressures that chess players are subject to. As for those between the pre-teen years and adulthood, I'd recommend the book, with parental guidance advised.
