Book Description

Anatoly Karpov was World Champion from 1975 to 1985 and is universally regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. Award-winning author Tibor Karolyi explains Karpov’'s genius with a particular focus on Karpov’'s unrivaled grasp of strategy.

Karolyi has selected Karpov’'s most entertaining and instructive strategic wins from 1961-1985 as the Russian star proved he was a worthy successor to Bobby Fischer.

The book starts with Karpov as a precocious youngster and tells the story of the making of the champion. It concludes with Karpov losing his title to his nemesis, Garry Kasparov.
