Hi Miss S.

This llink has some background info and a semi review of the book.

"First off, who is/was Elie Agur? My copy published by Cadogan says the book was copyrighted by Julie Hodgson in 1996 and reprinted in 1995 (sic!), 1996 and 1999, which makes no sense and there's nothing “About the author.”

As near as I could determine, Agur was a national master from the Netherlands who lived in The Hague and at some point he was affiliated with Israel with a modest 2285 rating. A lookup on the current FIDE rating list didn't turn up anything. "

It then goes onto other comments and then a review about the book.


Jan-23-21  Retireborn: In his Introduction he says that he lives (or lived then in 1992) a couple of minutes ride from the Royal Dutch library in The Hague. Says the book took him 3 years to write.
