Book Description

The Champion: Garry Kasparov
Seemingly invincible, but showing signs of some frailty when bombarded with ideas from the young generation of players. Could he yet again stamp his authority on the chess world, and snuff out the hopes of another young pretender?

The Challenger: Vishy Anand
Calm and modest away from the board, but renowned for his sharp, lightning-fast chess. Could the young Indian topple the giant?

Whoever was to win, the match was destined to provide a feast of attacking chess, with battles of a unique intensity and quality.

This blow-by-blow account brings the games alive, with pithy, accessible commentary from the man who brought the 1993 Kasparov-Short match to London ...
