Aage Georg Sivertsen has written 14 books. He trained as a historian and has worked for NRK for more than ten years as a documentary journalist.
Sivertsen’s most recent book is about chess genius Magnus Carlsen from Norway. The book has received critical acclaim. You can also find information about the author and some details about the book on the popular website www.chessbase.com. See the article published on 1 January 2016:
Over the last two years, Sivertsen has accompanied the Norwegian chess player and Team Carlsen to most of their tournaments. The author has had unique access to information, particularly by virtue of several long conversations with Magnus’ father, Henrik Carlsen. Sivertsen has also interviewed several top players and is a personal friend of former world champion Vishy Anand. This source material makes this book very different from the books that have previously been written about Magnus Carlsen.
