    Dmitry Plisetskiy's comment: - In the new edition of the 1st volume of the book by Garry Kasparov & quot; My great predecessors & quot; a number of historical facts were clarified and comments on all (!) 148 parties were thoroughly revised. Many previous estimates have changed in the games of Andersen, Morphy, Steinitz, Chigorin, Tarrash, Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine ... For example, in such famous games as the 7th game of the match Lasker - Steinitz (1894) or Pilsbury - Lasker (Petersburg 1896) , and indeed in all key parties of the match Capablanca - Alekhine (Buenos Aires 1927). Garry Kasparov’s five volumes & laquo; My great predecessors & raquo; has no analogues in chess literature: the 13th world champion talks about the fate and work of the twelve previous champions and their rivals, about a century and a half struggle for world championship. Exploring the famous games under the microscope of powerful computer programs, the author changes many previous estimates and, in essence, summarizes the development of chess in the 20th century. The first volume is about & laquo; uncrowned kings & raquo; past and the first four official world champions & mdash; Steinitz, Lasker, Capablanca and Alekhine. Here is the second edition, radically supplemented and revised. 48 pages of artwork on coated paper. & nbsp;

The book covers the period of Karpov and Kasparov as the world title holders. Anatoly Karpov: «The third volume of this work contains games form several matches in which I have participated. I can say that every such match is a tough experience demanding a great expenditure of mental and physical effort. For the champion to be victorious, his purely chess skill, knowledge and memory are not always sufficient – these qualities are also possessed by his opponent, who has defeated his rivals in a succession of qualifying competitions. But even so, it is more often the existing champion who wins… This is why, until very recently, there had been very few of them – only thirteen. Now the chess world is witnessing the birth of a new system for conducting the world championship, in which it would seem that the element of luck will play a significant role. This has been explained by the increasing tempo of life, and by the need to make chess a more attractive spectacle for those who do not understand the deep meaning of chess moves. It will be a pity if future champions do not become genuine idols for those who value our wonderful game, to whom this absorbing book is addressed»
