'A remarkable book - perhaps the most intimate portrait of a chess genius ever written . . . The Inner Game has all the compulsion of a good thriller' Robert Harris (author of Fatherland), Spectator 'Lawson does a superb job of evoking tension and narrative in a way that all the coverage at the rime failed to do ... the real flavour of the effort of analysis is captured and the dirty tricks and psychological warfare make good, sensational reading' Bryan Appleyard, Literary Review 'Lawson creates great drama out of his material... the tension is brilliantly sustained. And no, you don't have to be a chess expert or even to have played the game at all to enjoy this book' Simon O'Hagan, Independent on Sunday 'An engrossing study of a rarified world of eccentricity and achievement ... [a] tale of guile and skulduggery: bugged rooms, bribed coaches, tapped telephones, bluff and counterbluff. Much of it reads like a le Carre" novel. . .

The characters come through very precisely' Stephen Tumim, Daily Telegraph 'Gripping narrative . . . absorbing between-the-synapses account of an epic drama to which [Lawson] had unique access' Anthony Holden, Sunday Times 'Brilliantly written' Guardian Dominic Lawson is the editor of the Spectator.
