Garry KasparovSample pages (pdf)
Part one of a three volume autobiographical series focuses on the "pre-World Champion" phase of Kasparov's career. It includes his life story and one hundred memorable games and endgames with new annotations by the ex World Champion.
Kasparov's historical volumes have received great critical and public acclaim for their rigorous analysis and comprehensive detail regarding the developments in chess that occurred both on and off the board. This new volume and series continues in this vein with Kasparov scrutinising his most fascinating encounters from the period 1973-1985 whilst also charting his development away from the board.
This series will be unique by the fact that it will record the most important chess battles of the greatest chessplayer of all-time. The series in itself is a continuation of Kasparov's mammoth history of chess, comprising My Great Predecessors and Modern Chess.
Garry Kasparov was FIDE World Champion from 1985 to 1993 and unofficial World Champion from 1993 to 2000. He is regarded by many as the strongest chess player of all time.
