    Thanks everyone for your info for my list of Canadian chess books! I'll update it as I get time.

    I read the 300 books cover to cover. Favourites are any book by Irving Chernev and Edmar Mednis. Also, autobiographical best game collections, like Tartakower's 2 volumes.

    Regards,

    David

      I just read my 300th chess book

      With my rather loose definition of a “Canadian” chess book, we may include two by Evgeny Bareev, whom I suppose is now a Canadian citizen

      Two by Evgeny Bareev

      SKA-Turnier Munchen 1994
      with Raj Tishbierek
      Sportverlag, Berlin 1994

        After the first 300, I've read 3 more (Profile of a Prodigy, 2nd ed. and Endgame by Frank Brady; and the following).

        Here's another book by a Canadian, a chess playing sports journalist from Vancouver:

        The Grandmaster: Magnus Carlsen and the match that made chess great again by Brin-Jonathan Butler, hardcover, 2018.

        It's about the 2016 World Championship match Carlsen-Karjakin. Great stuff as he explores the winners, losers and oddballs of the chess world to compare them to Carlsen.

          ........

          In American Chess Magazine, Issue # 6, there is an ad for the book, The Sicilian: Thematic Sacrifices and Attacks by Jean Hébert.

            I was slightly surprised to see that Liza Orlova has published a chess book entitled "Chess for Beginners: Know the Rules, Choose Your Strategy and Start Winning". I'm not sure of the publishing date but it appears to be available now. The last year or two has seen lots of young Canadian Players publish books. I just got Joshua and John Doknjas's book on the Najdorf Sicilian.
