Search - List of Books by Bruce Pandolfini

Bruce Pandolfini is a chess author, teacher and coach. He was famously portrayed by Ben Kingsley in the 1993 film Searching for Bobby Fischer, based on the book of the same name by Fred Waitzkin. Pandolfini lives in New York and has coached many talented chess players, the most famous being Fabiano Caruana, the youngest Grandmaster in American history, and Josh Waitzkin, subject of the book and movie mentioned above. Pandolfini is popular with his students due to his easygoing attitude ... a sharp contrast to the stern character Kingsley portrayed in the film.

Pandolfini has written over a dozen books on chess including an instructional book on positional chess called "Weapons of Chess," as well as a few others on chess-related topics. He writes a monthly column for the magazine Chess Life entitled "The ABC's of Chess." This column once featured monthly tutorials on openings, but it has since evolved into "Solitaire Chess" that invites the reader to guess the moves played in a single game.

He appears on the box of Mattel's "Computer Chess". Pandolfini has a virtual chess school featured in the Playstation2 and PC game 'Chess Master'. His tutorial contains extensive analysis of white and blacks first four moves, tactics and positioning, the end game.
