Hi all,

I will continue my tradition of answering questions put in private on the blog, without giving the source of the question to cause no embarrassment. I do this because I know that a lot of people will find the question and answer interesting. Read more…

The Thinkers on the way

November 14th, 2017 9 comments

David Llada’s beautiful photography book The Thinkers was unfortunately delayed at the printers in Barcelona, but it is ready now. Any remaining websales should be sent out tomorrow. Apologies if you have been waiting impatiently, but David’s work of art is worth the wait.

As I mentioned in a previous blog comment, if you ordered our three new books at the same time, then we posted the first two already, and the third one, The Thinkers, will follow now.

A recurring question from those who have not seen The Thinkers yet is: “Who is in it?” Or more personally: “Am I in it?” Well, I am not photographed in it, but you might be. Below the fold is a list, in alphabetical order of surname, of those who are portrayed in the book. Guess who is first?

Forward Chess – Special Offer on Grandmaster Preparation series

November 3rd, 2017 4 comments

On Tuesday we will be releasing the sixth and final volume of Jacob’s Grandmaster Preparation series on Forward Chess. So we will make a Special Offer – all 6 books in the series in the Forward Chess editions for $99.95. That is, these 6 Forward Chess books for the price of 5.

To get the details of how to take advantage of this offer, please contact Forward Chess directly at info@forwardchess.com

I would emphasize that emailing Forward Chess is the only way to go, as you cannot click and buy this offer directly as you would normally do to buy a single book.

Or if you prefer paper to electronics, then there is already a Special Offer for the Quality Chess editions of Jacob’s series.

Free ‘Book of the Month’ – November and December

November 1st, 2017 27 comments

We are continuing our special offer – if you buy three books or more and live in the normal European Union zone (as defined by UPS – for example, they exclude some islands and remote areas) we will send you an extra book free.

Please note that if you buy a Special Offer and are in the EU zone, we will add one free book. For example, the Grandmaster Preparation Special Offer is 6 hardbacks for the price of 5. So if a European buys that, we send Jacob’s 6 GM Preparation hardbacks, plus one free extra book.

The previous default option on the free book was Carlsen’s Assault on the Throne. For November and December we will switch the default option to Positional Chess Sacrifices. But if you already have that book, or would prefer a different free book, then send us an email to salesgroup@qualitychess.co.uk with your order, asking to have it replaced with one of the following titles:

CHAMPIONS OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM
CARLSEN’S ASSAULT ON THE THRONE
GRANDMASTER BATTLE MANUAL
GRANDMASTER VERSUS AMATEUR
REGGIO EMILIA 2007/2008
THE ALTERMAN GAMBIT GUIDE – WHITE GAMBITS
THE ALTERMAN GAMBIT GUIDE – BLACK GAMBITS VOLUME 1
