Revue de presse

The enthusiasm that Garry has for chess jumps from the pages - the whole book reads like a fast-moving thriller.
If you haven't got the message already--this is a fantastic book. The sort of book that I will have to lock away for fear of spending too much time reading and re-reading it! --Matthew Sadler, New In Chess

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book, the fifth in Garry Kasparov's magnificent history of the World Chess Championship, catalogues what is probably the greatest ever rivalry for the ultimate chess title. Between 1984 and 1990 Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov contested five World Championship matches and played a total of more than 150 games against each other. These matches, all of which were close and very hard-fought, feature some of the greatest games of the modern era. Anatoly Karpov gained the right to challenge Bobby Fischer for the world title by winning through the Candidates series in 1974. As is well known, Fischer refused to defend the title and in 1975 Karpov became champion 'by default'. Although he did not have to contest a Championship match to gain the title, Karpov proved that he was a worthy champion by winning virtually every major tournament over the next decade. He also twice defended his title in matches against Viktor Korchnoi in 1981 and 1984. In this book, a must for all serious chessplayers, Kasparov analyses deeply Karpov's greatest games and assesses the legacy of this great Russian genius. Also under the microscope are the games of the other great, of the 1970s and 1980, Viktor Korchnoi.

Première phrase
This volume is devoted to the twelfth world champion Anatoly Karpov and his historic opponent Viktor Korchnoi, and to their staggeringly dramatic struggle for the chess throne, which filled the unusual vacuum that had arisen after Fischer's untimely departure. Lire la première page

Kasparov tackles Korchnoi and Karpov 13 mars 2006
Par Scott D. Thomson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The fifth in Kasparov's series on the world champions (and their greatest rivals) focuses on Anatoly Karpov, Kasparov's immediate predecessor and greatest rival, and Karpov's own bete noire, the great defector, Viktor Korchnoi.

Korchnoi and Karpov pose interesting challenges compared to Bobby Fischer, the main subject of Vol. 4 in the series. For starters, each has played well over 3,000 "official" games, compared to fewer than 800 for Fischer! Second, they are probably of less interest to Western readers than Fischer. But that is the readers' loss, for both are fascinating characters, as well as great chessplayers. Their world championship match in 1978 in Baguio, the Phillipines, was surely one of the bitterest, as well as most bizarre, encounters in the history of chess. Moreoever, in contrast to Fischer, who took long absences from competition and stopped playing altogether at the age of 29, both have maintained their strong play over decades.

Kasparov seems to have done a competent job showing the competitions and controversies of both men, including the manuverings that led FIDE to strip Fischer of the title and award it to Karpov, Korchnoi's 1976 defection and the subsequent "boycott" of him by the Soviet players, Karpov and Korchnoi's emergence as the leading players after Fischer's disappearance, and the eclipse of the former champion, Boris Spassky.

But the critical aspect of a book like this is the annotations. As with Vol. 4, I think the verdict is that they are excellent, with some reservations. Looking at the annotations for one of Karpov's famous wins, Karpov-Timman, Montreal 1979, I think some of the criticisms that have been made of earlier volumes still hold good -- he (or his assistant Plisetsky) relies heavily on earlier analysis by Dvoretsky and Karpov, adding what looks like a lot of Fritz-analysis to the opening. (That said, it's a great game, and Dvoretsky's and Karpov's comments are fascinating.) Turning to the analysis of some of the games from the Karpov-Spassky match in 1974, however, Kasparov's hand is much more apparent. The analysis of Game 3 -- Karpov's first victory after an opening-game defeat -- is tremendous, not just in terms of variations but in the first-rate explanation of both sides' strategic plans. I hope the rest of the analysis in the book is more like Karpov-Spassky than Karpov-Timman, but either way I am very glad to have the book.

A review of the book *AFTER* it's been released! 26 mars 2006
Par D. Avery - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Let me start with the obvious question: Should I buy this book.


Here's why:

Kasparov has written a series that will keep any chess player busy for years. Yes, he made numerous errors, especially in the earlier volumes. However, he has been learning how to write as he has continued through the other volumes. He has listened to, and responded appropriately to criticisms (especially by including non-Russian predecessors in volume IV).

Volume V is factually much more accurate than any of its predecessors in part because Kasparov was alive and analysing these games as they occurred. The level of his analysis is mind-boggling, and yet he still manages to make the notations readable. Once again, he has used computers to double-check his work, and once again, he has freely used many other people's analysis (usually without crediting them). However, this is clearly Kasaparov's book, and perhaps the single best chess book ever published.

I am sure that players will find errors in this book, but that is the nature of chess and of chess books. Instead of berating the author for his oversights, I plan on having fun seeing if I can spot even one! It may take me a few years, because there is so much meat to it.

There was a review written on March 12, before the book was published, which is basically a re-hash of the old criticisms of previous volumes. I don't think the old criticisms are fair for this new volume. If the previous reviewer has specific examples of sloppiness or careless analysis, I'd like to see them. But let me repeat, I consider this the best chess book ever written.

Powerful Insight 28 août 2014
Par Jeff Hardin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
If you have been fortunate enough to find this series, My Great Predecessors, you know already Kasparov's deep gifts of analysis. Of world champions, only Alekhin was perhaps as amazing at explaining his thoughts on hundreds of games at the top level. But in this series, we have material from Morphy through Anand. He has great respect for chess theory, and of course is a top master of openings. In this volume, he treats us to all of Karpov's best and astonishing efforts at the board. My favorite players are Fischer and Karpov, and Garry approaches their work with respect in and (surprisingly !?) with restraint. For me, the series form the best chess teaching of all time. For those in love with our great game, this is both candy and vitamin.

Reviewing Karpov's life and skills from Kasparov's point of view is the most attractive experience that I've had among all massive chess books that have studied. It's been very enjoyable.

Terrific five-volume set 22 mars 2008
Par J. Howard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is Volume Five of the five-volume set of My Great Predecessors. I had to do a lot of shopping around to find each volume at a price I could afford, but if you are serious about developing an understanding of chess strategy, this set is an excellent resource. The books cover the history of great chessmasters, detailing many of their games. I don't start at page one and read through them sequentially; rather, I look up a particular strategy and lay out the game on my chessboard to move through it. One game usually leads to another, and I can spend hours going through the volumes this way. [NOTE that this review is authored by my 19-year-old son.]
