Alternative Views:


It was a classic matchup, pitting the Irresistible Force against the Immovable Object. World Champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway is famous for grinding down his opponents. But in this second defense of his title, he faced Sergey Karjakin, the Russian grandmaster who is equally well known for his fierce resistance when under pressure.

Grandmaster Lev Alburt, three-time US Champion, is one of the world's most sought after chess teachers. National Master Jon Crumiller is Lev's chess analyst partner and an expert in the use of computer analysis, a dominating influence in modern chess preparation and annotation. Together, they give one of the most detailed and objective analysis of the modern world chess championship.

No stranger to tense world championship matches, including his own victory against Garry Kasparov in 2000, Vladimir Kramnik gives this book his own insightful take on the critical moves. You'll be treated to Vlad's viewpoints in every game. Sergey Karjakin himself recounts his most memorable moment in the match. Dan Lucas, Director of publications of the US Chess Federation and Al Lawrence, twice Chess Journalist of the Year, contributed their editing and writing expertise.
