Descriptions du produit

Garry Kasparov on Garry Kasparov, part 1 is the first book in a major new three-volume series. This series will be unique by the fact that it will record the greatest chess battles played by the greatest chessplayer of all-time. The series in itself is a continuation of Kasparov's mammoth history of chess, comprising My Great Predecessors and Modern Chess. Kasparov's historical volumes have received great critical and public acclaim for their rigorous analysis and comprehensive detail regarding the developments in chess that occurred behind the scenes. This new volume and series continues in this vein with Kasparov scrutinising his most fascinating encounters from the period 1973-1985 whilst also charting his development away from the board. This period opens with the emergence of a major new chess star from Baku and ends when Kasparov finally clinches the world crown - becoming, at 22, the youngest player ever to do so. It had been known in Russia for some time that Kasparov had an extraordinary talent but the first time that this talent was unleashed on the western world was in 1979.The Russian Chess Federation had received an invitation for a player to participate in a tournament at Banja Luka and, under the impression that this was a junior event, sent along the fifteen year old Kasparov (as yet without even an international rating!). Far from being a junior tournament, Banja Luka was actually a major international event featuring numerous world class grandmasters. Undeterred Kasparov stormed to first place, scoring 11.5/15 and finishing two points clear of the field. Over the next decade this "broad daylight" between Kasparov and the rest of the field was to become a familiar sight in the world's leading tournaments.

Another "must-have" book by Kasparov, specially interesting because he deals with his own games, life and emotions.
Garry was a generous player, who played powerfully.
He is a generous writer, who gives a lot of food to his readers, of whatever level.
Here he provides both a great chess book -he was one of the most spectaculer player ever- and a great biography.

Un grand moment de lecture pour les passionnés d'échecs. Du grand Kasparov...
les nombreux diagrammes permettent quasiment de suivre les parties sans échiquier.

A valuable insight into the personal and chess development of a great player 25 octobre 2011
Par Derek Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Following his five volumes on past world chess champions and his four books on "Modern Chess" (of which three were devoted to his five matches against Anatoly Karpov), this is the first of three autobiographical volumes on Kasparov's career, concluding at age 21 with the abrupt end in February 1985 of the first Karpov-Kasparov world championship match, following his crushing victories in the Interzonal tournament in 1982 and in Candidates' matches against Beliavsky, Korchnoi and Smyslov in 1983-84.

There are 100 games, of which the first ten Kasparov played under his birth name of Garik Weinstein. Most are complete games, but a few are endgames. There is very detailed analysis aided by the judgments of many analysts over time plus computer analysis alongside Kasparov's reasons for the moves he made and his judgments about them with hindsight. The quality of most of the games and all the analysis is as formidable as one would expect from the man who was perhaps the greatest ever player - an opinion shared by many of today's grandmasters, including current world champion Anand. Of course, others will advance the claims of Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine, Fischer, and perhaps Botvinnik and Tal. Given that some of these never played each other, and that no two ever played each other when both were at their prime, then it must ultimately be a matter of opinion.

Alongside the games there is a full and frank account by Kasparov of his childhood and later teenage years. On the quality of his chess as a junior Kasparov often resorts to quotes from others. Many of these are inevitably very favourable; for example, the prediction in the British newspaper The Guardian by Leonard Barden in February 1975 (when Fischer was still world champion) that Karpov would be the next champion, and that the 11-year old Garik Weinstein was clear favourite to be the champion after Karpov. Barden predicted this would happen in 1990. In fact it happened in 1985. That the young boy's great talent was fully recognized by others is shown by the fact that at the age of twelve his trainer, after a year of pleading, persuaded his family to change his name from Weinstein to his mother's name of Kasparov. The reason advanced was that nobody with such an obviously Jewish name as Weinstein would be allowed to become a challenger for the world championship given the anti-Semitism at the time in the Soviet Union and the emigration of thousands of Jews.

However, the book is not a triumphalist collection of quotes and games. Kasparov gives many critical observations by others about faults in his play, particularly impulsiveness. He even quotes his trainer describing how the young Kasparov ran sobbing to the arms of his mother after performing disappointingly in a tournament. Among the 100 games there are several losses by Kasparov and a number of draws, and throughout the book Kasparov is his own severest critic when he played a bad move or missed the best continuation.

This book is a fascinating read and a valuable insight into the personal and chess development of an immensely talented child who became the youngest ever world champion aged 22. I look forward to parts 2 and 3, covering the period of Kasparov's peak and his domination of tournament chess over a twenty year period.

Best games book since Bobby Fischer's 60 memorable games 19 octobre 2011
Par Michael Sullivan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is an absolutely outstanding book. I will leave expert judgment on the analysis to FM's and GM's but I can say as a chess read this is engrossing, exhilarating, and said otherwise pure pleasure. It's a page turner. You can't put it down. The chess is from another world. Bobby Jones said of Jack Nicklaus -- he plays a game with which I'm not familiar. When you see these games again they won't feel familiar, you'll be stunned at what you've been missing. Stohl's terrific effort is wonderful and I remain grateful for his pain staking work but in terms of excitement and narrative it pales in comparison. This is not only a phenomenal chess book, it's a great read! Kasparov talks about his opponents, the tournaments, his progress, his own life demons including the difficulty of being the only man in his household after his grandfather died. This is Kasparov at his best. His life has been a gift to chess, but this book goes a step further. He could have put his name on anything and it would have sold. This is something more. You can't buy what is given here because it's the kind of thing that can't be sold. It's love. Love of chess -- the game, the people, the history, and a glimpse into some possible futures.
If I could only have one chess book with me on a dessert Island -- like Gilligan's -- I'd take Bobby's 60 and this latest by Kasparov, stitch them together, and call it one book.

Best Game Collection by Greatest Player Kasparov 15 octobre 2011
Par Johhny Depp Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is one of the best game collections ever written by one of the greatest chess player ever! It doesn't get better than this, Kasparov deeply analyzed his games from promising young player to World Champion! There is an immense chess knowledge in these pages and a lot to be learned by playing over these games with Kasparov explaining his moves and thoughts during game. Of course he utilized computers to double check and shed new light on these games. This should be in every serious chess players library.

A very Good read in typical Kasparov style 27 juin 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Covers from what Kasparov's younger years. Similar to the Great Predecessors and his other works. The same detailed analysis and references. Works well on the Kindle. If you liked his other works this is recomended.

Kindle version is a bargain at present prices 6 avril 2012
Par MikeW - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Even with the always annoying surcharge of $ 3 + for Kindle orders to European addresses (supposedly for 3G downloads for my Wifi only Kindle / iPad), the Kindle price of this book is a bargain. (Although I think the iPad's larger screen (or a PC screen) is necessary to do justice to the diagrams).

I have one errata from the first chapter but it's not a Chess one. The newspaper Neues Deutschland was said to be the main newspaper in *West* Germany when it was written in the book that it reported on the "Chess wunderkind from Baku" [it would actually have reported on the Wunderkind with a capital W] whereas in fact it was the party newspaper of the SED party that was in control of East Germany at the time. I doubt if any W. German newspaper would then have been available at all in Baku.
