Very good book. But I wouldn't classify it as a "Chess Book". It's more of a biography, or I guess, a group biography. It focused on the players, parents, teachers, coaches, and sponors of the HS tournament environment. It didn't delve into the actual game hardly at all. I still found it quite enjoyable, but probably only for a small niche audience.
