Chess Match & Tournament Books
The first week of November 2016, hundreds descended on the city’s South Street Seaport to watch the World Chess Championship between Norway's Magnus Carlsen and Russia's Sergey Karjakin—what by the time it was over would be front-page news and thought by many the greatest finish in chess history. Author Brin-Jonathan Butler was granted unique access to the two-and-half-week tournament and watched every move. In this book, he captures one of the world’s greatest sportsmen at the height of their powers, and attempts to decipher the secret to that greatness.
