It's all there: Botvinnik on Kasparov's talent, Tony Miles on winning Tilburg while lying on a stretcher, Ricardo Calvo on being persona non grata with FIDE, Bent Larsen on preparation, the death of J.H. Donner. Remember Valery Salov annotating just one game and somehow connecting Spinoza, Bakunin, Monica Lewinsky, Garry Kasparov, Pope Clement V, Paul van der Sterren and Dr Hannibal Lector? It's included. Meet Spassky, Portisch, Krabbe, Tal, Campo, and other colourful characters. Relive Karpov's 1994 Linares win, and Kasparov selfdestructing against Deep Blue. Read Kasparov on Fischer. Plus of course : the very best games of chess by Anand, Ivanchuk, Shirov, Topalov, Morozevich et al. Compiled by Steve Giddins. Softback, 398 pages.
