In 2013 chess returned to world headlines. The energetic Norwegian prodigy Magnus Carlsen was front page news and his fans were not disappointed: the World Number 1 won the World Championship.


Carlsen’s Assault on the Throne gives an inside view of Carlsen’s dramatic journey: from one of eight challengers in the London Candidates tournament, with the near disaster in the final rounds, ending with triumph in Chennai.


With behind-the-scenes stories and top-level analysis of the games, Kotronias & Logothetis have written the ultimate book on how Carlsen became the 16th undisputed World Chess Champion.


This hardcover edition includes over a hundred color photographs.
