Everything you always wanted to know about chess but were afraid to ask.

Bill Hartston's exposé of chess-players' manners tells you everything you wanted to know about the game but were afraid to ask - and perhaps a few things more.

Why are Belgians such poor cheats at international chess? Do the Russians really seduce Western grandmasters with beautiful girl spies? Did Bobby Fischer really sell his soul to the devil? Can chess-playing computers really be that stupid? When is it an advantage to have long arms and eyes that are too close together?

Do you want to think like a grandmaster? Surround yourself with adoring sexy women? Kick sand in the face of nine-stone weaklings? Cook a delicious carbonade de boeuf? No book can be complete without the answers to these problems and How to Cheat at Chess is certainly no exception.
