KK I covered as never before

by Bob Rasmussen on 3/8/2009

Though the history of Kasparov's relationship to Karpov within the Soviet chess hierarchy would have been improved by independent verification and written documentation, its telling makes for a compelling story of byzantine politics. The same can be said of the reason for the termination of their first match, which has always suffered from a lack of corroboration. Still, this book is a must for those who want to see the 1984-85 48 game marathon in Moscow covered as never before. For this reason alone, the book is worth purchasing and should have been voted by serious chessplayers worldwide ChessCafe's Book of the Year. Unfortunately, lesser lights prevailed. C'est la vie.
