Tim Feinstein.

Second—in alphabetical order only—is Tim Feinstein, a wonderful chessplayer and terrific lawyer who read the manuscript. He caught many mistakes and made a lot of great suggestions. (Many errors no doubt remain here and there. He isn’t responsible for them.) Tim is a generous teacher from whom I have learned much about the game, and I thank him profusely. In everyday life he is far kinder than he appears in this picture, which captures him in a moment of characteristic brutality toward an opponent. You wouldn't want to cross him at the chessboard.
