Michael Ehn

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of their chess column in the daily "Der Standard", ruf & ehn (i.e. Ernst Strouhal and Michael Ehn) emerged with this wonderful publication, being a combination of a book (with a chronology, indexes and 273 chess problems) and a DVD (with all 1035 chess columns from VI 1990 to VI 2010 as jpg or pdf files). This work belongs to the 15 most beautiful Austrian books in 2010, a tribute certainly rarely paid to a chess book at national level.
