Triple Exclam!!! The Life and Games of Emory Tate, Chess Warrior

Emory Tate was more than an International Master at chess. He was an icon of African American chess, a poet, a fighter, a father, a wordsmith and an oftentimes misunderstood genius. To many in the chess world, Emory was a boastful stranger and, to a lucky few, a good friend. Emory acquired legions of fans through his brilliant chess moves. Many became fascinated by his enigmatic personality and mysterious past only to discover that it was nearly impossible to separate the myth from the man. This is where the book Triple Exclam!!! shines.

In Triple Exclam!!!, Daaim Shabazz aptly exposes the real Emory Tate by focusing not just on the light and dark, but also everything in between. Through sheer determination, Shabazz does what so many other chess players failed to, he captures the genius that was Emory Tate. In doing so, Triple Exclam!!! makes a solid case that: Emory Tate was a chess player of the highest caliber, and despite the odds being against him, became a legendary American chess figure.

Fans of Tate will love this book. As a close friend of Emory’s, I cherish it. Most importantly, I know Emory Tate would find his portrayal in Triple Exclam!!! to be “most professional.”
