ACP Book of the Year - survey


17 April 2012

The ACP is proud to publish its shortlist of candidates to its first ACP Book of the Year prize.

Basically all major publishing houses decided to take part in the contest and therefore the selection is as representative as possible.

Books are in alphabetical order and a link to their official pages is provided next to each book.

The jury is made up of all members of the ACP, and as such is a very qualified group of chess professionals who will deliver a very authoritative opinion.

Each vote is in fact a valuable insight from a chess professional resting on his personal experience.

Each member is asked to vote up to five books that he/she deems most interesting.

The book receiving the highest number of votes will be declared ACP Book of the Year for 2012.

Voting will be open 12 April through 30 April and the winner shall be announced on 2 May.

Good luck to all authors and publishers taking part in the 2012 ACP Book of the Year contest!
