What is included with this book?


Four-time US Champion Yasser Seirawan provides an engaging account of his games and interactions with the world champions of chess: celebrated figures including Garry Kasparov, Anatoly Karpov, Bobby Fischer, Boris Spassky, Tigran Petrosian, Mikhail Tal, Vassily Smyslov, Mikhail Botvinnik and Max Euwe. Having been involved in frequent battles against world champions over a 25 year period, Seirawan is in an ideal position to describe what it's really like staring across the chessboard at a true legend. In this book he covers his most memorable encounters in detail his famous wins and painful losses against the best players on the planet. Seirawan's substantial involvement in off-the-board chess activities over the years has also led to much communication and dealings with world champions, and here Seirawan recounts for the first time many stories involving these giants of chess, helping to paint a picture of their personalities and revealing their many different dimensions.
