CLEARANCE - Learn Chess from the World Champions: Kasparov-Anand 1995Product Code: CB0140RB
Here at last is a book that talks about chess in plain English, a book that stoops to explain some of the more routine (and - to most of us - no less mysterious) decisions other books treat as self-explanatory. Learn Chess from the World Champions: Kasparov-Anand 95 is really two books in one. Part I is a red carpet treatment for new and casual players. Former Chess Life editor Don Maddox takes you through a quick history of the World Chess Championship, including a survey of the personalities that have shaped the game. Then he introduces you to the players in this year's historic Intel PCA World Championship Match being held atop the World Trade Center in New York City, followed by a section on the basic principles and strategies of chess from a layman's perspective, explaining move by move 13 previous World Championship games - one by each of 13 official world champions leading up to Viswanathan ("Vishy") Anand's 1995 assault on World Champion Gary Kasparov.
Part II analyzes eight previous Kasparov-Anand meetings and the games from Kasparov-Anand 95 with an eye toward building on the lessons learned or reviewed in Part I. International Master and leading chess journalist Biarke Kristensen writes a complete Match Book for the 1995 World Championship, combining world class analysis with advanced chess instruction designed to help even experienced players make the most of lessons hidden in the games of the world's strongest players.
So you have in your hands both the complete record of one of chess history's most important matches and one of the most instructive chess books you're ever likely to pick up - a great tool for sharpening your own game or for introducing friends or students to a lifetime of challenge, fun and excitement.
