Editorial Reviews

A masterful job – probably the best book on a championship that I have ever seen. — Dylan Loeb McClain, Editor-in-chief for the Organizers of the 2016 WC match, and former New York Times chess columnistLev Alburt and Jon Crumiller have combined forces with former world champion Vladimir Kramnik to produce a deeply considered account of Magnus Carlsen’s narrowly successful title defence against Sergei Karjakin in New York last year. The analysis produces the last word on what both did and should have transpired in every game while color photos convey a vivid impression of the visual aspects of the competition. — Grandmaster Raymond Keene OBE (New York Times)Vladimir Kramnik [provides] the most candid analysis of a championship match ever made by a former champ. — Grandmaster Andy Soltis (New York Post)
