271 pages, softback. Over the past few years the great chess player Garry Kasparov has written five bestselling books praising the contributions to chess made by the previous world champions. The series is called "My Great Predecessors". As a reaction to this wonderful series of books, leading chess writer Tibor Karolyi has written this imaginary sixth volume. In gently humorous but chessically serious style, the author imagines Kasparov is annotating over 70 of his own lost games, and blaming all these defeats on the bad influence of each of the previous world champions, providing indepth analysis to show how he was misled by them. The book also serves as a highly instructive, practical chess book to beat Kasparov, the greatest player of all time, took some pretty special chess, and readers will enjoy learning from this. It is astonishing how the author has managed to find so many games that exhibit uncanny similarities between Kasparov and his predecessors, which makes the content of the book extremely plausible.
