Interview in Chess Life Magazine

Chess Life is the magazine for USCF members. The August edition has an interview with Dr. Kenneth Kiewra about fostering talent (His book titled Nurturing Children’s Talents. A Guide For Parents was published in January 2019). The author is no chess player, but a chess parent, and his son Keaton Kiewra (born 1987) earned the title of International Master.


First Positive Reactions

Here are a couple of responses to the interview with Andreas Skytte Hagen and Opening Simulator – King’s Indian Defence, posted on Quality Chess Blog.

Interview: “What an excellent interview. It convinced me to order your new book and Sharp Endgames. It didn’t either make things worse that “The Secret life of Bad Bishops” which I’m currently reading is very enjoyable!”
