'Chess the Hard Way'' is the autobiography of Daniel Abraham Yanofsky, who was not only Canada's first chess grandmaster buit was Canada's only grandmaster until the modern era. His career is remarkable. He was from a remote Indian town in Central Canada where there were no chess masters. Almost invariably, strong chess players only develop in places where there are strong players.

This book was originally published as The Official Blue Book and Encyclopedia of Chess. In reprinting this book, the word ''Official'' has been deleted because the official rules have since been published by FIDE. However, the rules are substantially the same, just the new rules are more complex and detailed. The author, Kenneth Harkness, was the inventor and developer of the chess rating system that is now used in every country of the world.

Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky (1866-1942) is considered to have been the greatest composer of chess endgame studies ever. To call him a genius is to trivialize his accomplishments, because there are many geniuses, but few can equal the output of Troitzky. In his lifetime, Troitzky composed more than one thousand chess endgame studies.
