Blue Ribbon Chess Books 2011

It's that time of year again, when I update my running list of Award Winning Chess Books. There were two repeat winners in 2011. John Nunn won his fourth award for as many titles, although one award was shared with another author. Jeremy Silman won his fifth award for a third title; his book on Pal Benko, co-authored with the American-Hungarian GM, won three awards in 2004.

For the equivalent post on last year's awards, see Blue Ribbon Chess Books 2010. As I mentioned in that post, it would make more sense to update the list of awards immediately after the ChessCafe award has been announced in February, but I can't seem to shake the habit of looking at the awards just before the year-end holiday shopping season.
