Vladimir Kramnik is one of the greatest chess players of all time. From 2000 to 2007, the Russian held the title of Classical World Chess Champion. He contributed significantly to the reunification of the world title, set trends in numerous opening systems, and remains one of the strongest and most influential players on the planet.

This book tells the remarkable story of Kramnik's top-level clashes, while providing an exciting view behind the scenes of the chess world. Added to this are Kramnik's own comments on some of his most memorable games, as well as numerous colour photographs.

"Art and chess are just different fields, in which the same poetry finds expression." - Vladimir Kramnik, 14th World Chess Champion

"Vladimir Kramnik is one of the most talented players, perhaps THE most talented player, whom I have met in my chess career .. There are some positions, like for example with the bishop pair or with a central passed pawn, which he played as if with divine inspiration." - Artur Yusupov

Carsten Hensel is a sports manager, event organizer and journalist, who was Kramnik’s long-time manager.
