Some kid borrowed Forcing Chess Moves from our library a few years ago and didn't return it, and I really loved this book, so I ordered another copy. It arrived yesterday morning.
My students mostly couldn't see anything unusual at all about the cover at first, but after I pointed it out, they were like "Miss! How did you do that??"

Why is the arm pixellated? It looks like the cover of a japanese movie (of the not-nice kind).
Pretty cool to have your name on the cover of that book! How DID you do it? :-)
too bad they spelled your name wrong

o.k. you love books...

Speaking of books, my all-time favorite chess book is Kings of
New York. In my opinion, you were
portrayed pretty favorably in Mr.
Weinreb's book about Murrow high
school's chess team, although current GM Alex Lenderman clearly
wasn't so highly regarded. I was
wondering if you wished to comment about this interesting glimpse into the scholastic chess world.
I was the model for the cover photo. The image is not pixellated - my arm actually looks like that. And not just my arm.

Nice -- this is one of my favorite chess books as well.
