Über diesen Titel
In this autobiography, Garry Kasparov, who became the youngest chess champion in history, describes his intense rivalry with the legendary Karpov and analyzes their matches and rows.From Publishers Weekly:
"Deep down inside I am a romantic," confesses Kasparov, the brash, supremely confident Soviet grand master who in 1985, at age 22, defeated fellow countryman Anatoly Karpov to become the youngest-ever world chess champion. In this articulate, witty, outspoken autobiography, written with Trelford, an editor of the British Observer , Kasparov recalls his Jewish-Armenian family background, his father's death when he was seven and his precocious entry into the tournament world. Focusing on key matches in a narrative chock-full of chess anecdotes and game analyses, the book highlights the grand master's running feud with a bureaucratic "chess mafia" and his gutsy attempt to democratize the sport as it is played in the Soviet Union. This sometimes rancorous tell-all offers a behind-the-scenes look at the intrigue and politics of top-level competition. Photos.
