Tibor Karolyi & Nick Aplin

This humorous antidote to "My Great Predecessors" explains how, in trying to emulate his illustrious forebears as World Champion, Kasparov suffered some of his most painful defeats, thus preventing him from becoming an even stronger player than he was! If only his "lazy" predecessors had explained and annotated their games properly, things might have been different!

In satirical style, the authors imagine Kasparov is annotating over 70 of his own lost games, and blaming all these defeats on the bad influence of each of the previous world champions, providing in-depth analysis to show how he was misled by them. In twelve chapters, one for each of Kasparov's predecessors, even Steinitz and Lasker are held accountable for Gary's shortcomings!

The book also serves as a highly instructive, practical chess book: to beat Kasparov, the greatest player of all time, took some pretty special chess, and readers will enjoy learning from this. It is astonishing how the authors have managed to find so many games that exhibit uncanny similarities between Kasparov and his predecessors, which makes the content of the book extremely plausible - as if Kasparov himself were writing it.
