Description

May 1997. It was the match that stunned the world: Chess Champion Garry Kasparov was beaten by the massively parallel computer, Beep Blue - an opponent that Kasparov had vanquished in 1996. But unlike his human opponents, Deep Blue could be redesigned in the intervening year. The result: the first "player" - computer or human - ever to win a match against the chess genius. Kasparov's own move-by-move analysis of these games in "A New Era" shows just how much IBM has improved the breed, and how they were spoiling for a fight in the momentous rematch.

A must read for anyone who is passionate about the world's most enduring game of strategy and wits, A New Era takes the reader inside the world of professional chess, offering insiders' insights (including those of Kasparov himself) into the politics and psychology of competition at the top levels of play, whether against human or machine.
