How Kasparov was misled

Kasparov: How His Predecessors Misled Him About ChessEvery once in a while, a very special chess book comes around. Yesterday it happened again.

Yesterday we received, from England, the unofficial 6th volume of Garry Kasparov's blockbuster, epoch-making, prize-winning My Great Predecessors series. I am not kidding you!

Kasparov: How His Predecessors Misled Him About Chess is going to raise a lot of eyebrows and, if my instincts are right, will entertain many chessplayers from all walks of life.

What has author Tibor Karolyi done? He has selected 70 defeats by Garry Kasparov, and has Kasparov "himself" blame all these losses on his predecessors: they made him lose these games!

It is more than just a humuorous book, as Karolyi, one of the world's greatest experts on Kasparov's chess, recognizes similarities and finds patterns in Kasparov's games which nobody else has ever seen.

As such, it is also quite instructive.

Please have a look at this extraordinary book (271 pages at only € 18.95).
