Chess grandmaster Helmut Pfleger proves week after week in ZEITmagazin that he is not only a gifted chess player - in his best days he was number 40 in the world - but also an enthusiastic author. And he has been doing so since November 5, 1982, when the first chess column by the then 39-year-old specialist in internal medicine and psychotherapy appeared. "Fearless Pia" was the title of the first piece, and has since been followed by almost 1,500 further articles. Pfleger always manages to inspire a wide audience for the royal game. One of the most prominent readers is probably Richard von Weizsäcker: the chess column in DIE ZEIT is both relaxing and enjoyable in a pleasantly strenuous way, according to the former Federal President.

SCHACH-ZEIT-KNALLER is a collection of the best 120 problems with surprising solutions from three decades. It goes without saying that all chess lovers will be entertained in an entertaining and informative way, especially since this volume also contains extras such as the game of the respective decade, a calendar with the life dates of the most famous chess masters from the present and past, and an interview with the man who inspires us with his unmistakable charm for the game of chess.
