I have it on good authority that he's one of their best-selling writers, delivers his books on time/early, etc, etc.  So I think that Everyman is pretty happy with him as-is.  Most people who buy those books are not looking for what most posters here are looking for.


Thats interesting. When i first started reading his books i thought i liked them, and have several of them. I dont know if they have since got worse, but now i cant help but find his writing completely distracting.

What to expect?
Lots of mindless drivel, one or two games where he beats 2000-rateds, and a little theory buried in the morass of arse-clenchingly terrible writing.
Everyman editors - tough love is needed. You have a job to do. Do it.

What to expect from Mr. Lakdawala?


Lots of ´interesting´ storys - less interesting chess content.  Roll Eyes


The Lakdawalas must be twins, at least (same first name)  Roll Eyes
