Our new book is called…

 
We are going to publish a new book, in both German and English, by GM Thomas Luther. In German we already have a title – Vom Schüler zum Großmeister. The direct translation into English would be ‘From Pupil to Grandmaster’ or ‘From Student to Grandmaster’, but we are not happy with either of those options. Maybe they are too similar to Jonathan Hawkins’ ‘From Amateur to IM’ or maybe it’s something else, but they don’t feel right.
 
So we are looking for suggestions. The book is about chess improvement and training, including the story of Thomas’s journey to the GM title. So maybe the title could involve the word ‘grandmaster’, but in fact we are open to all non-obscene suggestions. If we use your suggestion, you will be mentioned on page 2 of the book and, if I’m feeling really generous, maybe we’ll even give you a free copy of the book.

    You could keep it simple with:

    Or, depending on the emphasis of the book, one of
    “Becoming a Grandmaster: A Personal Guide”
    “Becoming a Grandmaster: A Practical Guide ”
    “Becoming a Grandmaster: A Study Guide”
    “Becoming a Grandmaster: A Modern Guide”

    Depending on the style of the text, “Approach” may fit better than “Guide” at the end of the title.

    Hi

    A good title should hint something about the book besides it being an improvement book. E.g. is the focus on a specific system, on attitude towards training, on sequence of learning sertain themes, on structure, etc. A few more Words about the content of the book and how it will contribute to chess litterature would enable better suggestions.

    Pretty much the only criticism I can think of for QC was the title of Axel Smith’s book. That and the design of the cover left it, in my view, open to the perception that it was selling snake oil when, in fact, it was an excellent, thought-provoking book. QC is far from the worst offender in this case – I thought the title and cover of Hawkins’ fine endgame book was little short of ridiculous.

    So I would urge against a repeat of that kind of mistake. Of course I am probably guilty of underestimating commercial realities. I’m guessing both books would have sold less copies if they had more sober titles.

    On the contrary. The title of that book was maybe our best title. The same with the cover. It made people look at it for a moment and once we had their attention, that was it. A good book marketed poorly is unfair to readers, author and the publisher alike.

    @Remco G @Jacob Aagaard Playing devil’s advocate, I can think of plenty of all-time classics with workmanlike, does-what-it-says-on-the-tin titles. If the purpose of titles is to grab attention, should Shereshevsky’s book been called “Crush your opponents in the endgame”? Would it have been taken as seriously if it was? There is a fine line between good marketing and sensationalism.
    Again, Smith’s book is not the best example of what I’m thinking of, because it’s a fine book, and it probably stays the right side of that fine line.
    But if it had been from a different publisher, I think I would have dismissed it out of hand, or at least until reviews convinced me it was a book of substance. My first impression was to feel the same kind of skepticism I feel when I see books called “What it takes to become a chess master”.
    And even good books can be undermined if that line is crossed. Again, Hawkins springs to mind. He put together a labour of love on endgame positions and his publishers reached for the most sensational, inappropriate title they could imagine. I think Amateur to IM had enough substance to do well without the used-car salesman title. Maybe I am being naive with that last statement.

    I presume the Book is being marketed to those aspiring to the GM Title, as well as the less ambitious reader just looking for an honest account of what it took to get there, complete with anecdotes and atmosphere . The title should reflect that.

    By the way, I would have suggested the title Confessions of a Grandmaster, unfortunately that book already exists and the cover was intriguing. The book itself was also a wonderful read, very enlightening and highly recommended.

    @Canoe
    Music is about the distance between the notes, not the notes themselves. Thus, if all our titles were like that one, it would not have worked in the same way. Btw. we all think Amateur to IM is a great title.

    @Jacob Aagaard I think it’s wonderfully simple and catchy. But I also think it’s false advertising. It makes me feel condescended to by Mongoose Press. I felt it ended up drawing discussion away from the book’s quality as forums and reviews focused on the misleading sales pitch. MP would argue that there is no such thing as bad publicity but I wonder whether perceptions of it are damaged in the long run.
    I take the point about your titles. Pump up your Rating is a different type of title for a different type of book I suppose.

    If there was a new book on Rubinstein, it would certainly have something with ‘piano’ in the title. Or Bronstein and the russian revolution.

    The title should have a word or expression close to the German “Vom Schüler…” in order to reflect that stage on the way.
    “Schüler” are generally the children or youth who go to school, but it also can mean special students of a teacher or master.

    “A practical guide to chess mastery”

    “How to improve your chess: from amateur to grandmaster”

    “Chess training: a grandmaster’s course”

    I like especially the last one since I think the content is taught in a personal way.
