"an American chess history buff's rapture...Lahde's book is important, and he deserves our thanks for filling a longstanding void"--Chess Life; "for all around contributions to the game Isaac Kashdan has to rank at the very top or very close to it...has filled a huge gap in America chess literature...a first rate research job...McFarland has done its usual high quality job with excellent paper, library binding and a clear layout. Highly recommended"--IM John Donaldson (JeremySilman.com); "a beautiful tribute to one of America's chess giants. The work, 20 years in the making, meticulously weaves together Kashdan's life with his chess moves"--The Washington Post; "a fitting monument...wonderful"--Manchester Chess Federation; "an inspiring biography...deserves to be read"--Georgia Chess News; "this book should not be missing from the library of any lover of chess history because it is the first (and thus fundamental) biography of this great US chess player" Quarterly for Chess History.
