Chess legend Kasparov’s book a big hit

Kasparov wins Book of the Year Award
“The book can be read on several levels – as a dramatic story, or as providing insights into opening theory, or as great games enhanced by deep analytical annotations. Kasparov succeeds triumphantly in illuminating every aspect of this historic struggle. He is establishing as formidable a reputation as an author, as he did as a player.” The English Chess Federation’s 2009 Book of the Year Award went to Kasparov vs Karpov 1975-85.
Garry Kasparov on Modern Chess, Part 2 – Kasparov vs Karpov 1975-1985, published last year by Everyman, has won the English Chess Federation’s 2009 Book of the Year Award. In this book Garry Kasparov analyses in depth all pre-1984 games with Anatoli Karpov (including one simul!) and the Moscow clashes from 1984 and 1985, giving his opinions both on the political machinations surrounding the matches as well as the games themselves.
