An Inspirational Story of Chess and Transformation by National Chess...

In his inspiring new book, "A Pawn’s Journey: Transforming Lives One Move at a Time" (Made for Success Publishing, Oct. 2018, $16.99), National Chess Master, Elliott Neff, tells the uplifting story of April, a disheartened teen who is introduced to the game of chess and mentored by a school counselor. Her mindset changes as she learns invaluable life lessons through the game of chess. In this self-help tale based on a true story, readers will learn resiliency, how to gracefully handle a “loss” and turn it into a learning opportunity, the principle of giving back, respect and sportsmanship.

Elliott is passionate about helping others discover life lessons through the game of chess. So much so that he has created a charitable campaign to provide books and chess instruction to Title I teachers and students in need. Elliott has positively impacted thousands of students per week through his Chess4Life program, affiliated chess centers, and schools who utilize the curriculum.

With endorsements from heavy-hitters in the field of education and business as well as a foreword by Tim Crothers, former senior writer at Sports Illustrated and author of the book, "Queen of Katwe", Elliott Neff’s "A Pawn’s Journey" is a must-read for any parent, educator, or young adult who is wanting to make a difference in their work, school and life!
