Good Chess, BUT ... 30 juin 2001
Par A.J. Goldsby I - Publié sur
Format: Broché
If you would like to see a book of some of the games of a great player, you may be interested in this book. But a few words of warning first.
#1.) This book came out BEFORE Kramnik won the chess World Championship, so already it is a little dated.
#2.) This is some of the dryest text you may ever see in your life. (Few, if any good stories.) In fact, if you suffer from insomnia, this may be a good book for you. I also get the impression that Kramnik either accepted factually that he was very talented, or he is one of the most conceited individuals on the face of the earth.
#3.) Many of the Soviet books are "ghost-written" by other chess players - trainers, analysts and such. I get the impression that this is what happened here. (A few of the errors in analysis are too basic to have been perpetrated by Kramnik. Indeed, I. Damsky is probably responsible for the majority of this book.)
Having given the above harsh criticisms, you may get the idea that I hate this book. This is simply not the case. I am a Master who makes a great part of his living from teaching chess. I consider it my responsibility to give as an honest review of every chess book as I possibly can. I also feel it my duty to reflect what many of my students and contacts on the Internet have told me about this book.
If you are looking for a book with some of the best annotations by a top player available, this would be a good book for you to choose. (Many of the annotations are gleaned from magazines where Kramnik had a direct hand in reviewing the games.)
What this book lacks in great stories, and perhaps quality, it makes up for in quantity. You get almost 200 deeply annotated games by the current World Champion. You will get one of the most COMPLETE chess educations available in one book by carefully studying ALL of these games. (And I estimate it would take the average player nearly two years to do this!)
Warning: Most of these games are highly technical. Many of my students decribed them as "dry and boring." (In the style of Capablanca and Karpov.) The average player may not have the skill to appreciate just how hard it is to play like this. Careful study of these games will definitely improve your chess.

A must have 23 mai 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is a fantastic book and for once i have to disagree with Goldsby about a book . This book is divided into 2 parts,the first by damsky and the second by kramnik. The first part i admit doesnt have much anotations, but has alot of games. The second part is by kramnik, it has his best games FULLY! analysed. It is a phenomanal book and even the young 13 year old GM who drew to kasparov rated this book as one of his favourites. If your looking for a games collection book this is for you. However you must understand if you are looking for an agrresive repetoir as white i recommend shirovs book fire on baard as that deals more with e4 then nf3/d4 or c4. However as black the two books are much the same both players play the botvinnik, the meran and sveshnikov (which is in fashioin currently, most probably due to kramniks addtions to the opening.) DO not make a mistake andnot buy this book as i almost did, or you'll be jeoulous of the next person who does!

Totaly dissatisfied with this book 29 octobre 2005
Par I. Knezovic - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have a lot of game-collections/biography chess books in my library, considering the best ones Life & Games of Mikhail Tal and I Play Against Pieces by Svetozar Gligoric but, belive it or not, this Kramnik one is the worst I have encountered with. Every game is tipically anotated as quick fix for some second rate chess magazine, without any wish for explaining itself or its background to the reader. And authors own biography is just short of unexistent, although it is known that he had a rich life chesswise, before going on top (working in famous Botvinnik chess school, playing junior games against famous oponents of today etc.) Its a shame, and I hope that updated version would be much frendlier and filled with important games played in last five years, and with extended biography.

Very Special Best Games Collection 26 mai 2013
Par R. Tobias - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Here is a book that I would consider a 'modern classic', a book of well annotated games of one of the most powerful strategic/positional players in chess history. There is an extensive bibliography, written by Damsky, and a long selection of rapid and blind games, called 'The Spirit of the Times'. It is rather fascinating (and humbling) to see how strongly a super GM can play under these conditions. The main 'Selected Games' section is only 40 or so games, annotated carefully by Kramnik himself. But the strength of the play and the fine annotations by Kramnik are rather special, and are not to be missed by serious players. I have to admit that much of the play is above me, a very definite club level player, but stronger players, and all lovers of well-annotated games will find rich material for study, enjoyment and appreciation here. One can only wish that the main games section was 2 or 3 times as long, so good is the material! Don't miss this one!

Great book, too much annoying flattery by Damsky 11 février 2010
Par bckm - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a very good book; obviously, there are very few people who have the credentials to offer criticism of the quality of Kramnik's analysis. My beef with this book is the obvious sucking up to Kramnik by Damsky. He spews all sorts of praise on Kramnik, as if he is the biggest genius and best human being the world has ever known. Some flattery is probably expected; Kramnik is, after all, one of the strongest players in history. However, Damsky goes way overboard, and it takes away from the overall quality of the book. If you can get past his fawning praise (and you should), then you will learn from Kramnik's annotations. But Damsky's sucking up is hard to ignore.
