Description

Improve your chess by studying the greatest games of all time, from Adolf Anderssen’s ‘Immortal Game’ to Anand versus Kramnik 2008, and featuring a foreword by World Champion Vishy Anand.

The 125 greatest chess games of all time, selected, analysed, re-evaluated and explained by a team of British experts and illustrated with over 1,000 chess diagrams. Join the authors in studying these games, the cream of two centuries of international chess, and develop your own chess-playing skills – whatever your current standard. Instructive points at the end of each game highlight the lessons to be learned.

First published in 1998, a second edition of The Mammoth Book of the World’s Greatest Chess Games in 2004 included an additional 12 games. This edition includes a further 13 games as well as some significant revisions to the analysis and information regarding other games in earlier editions of the book, facilitated by the use of a variety of chess software.

Publisher Review

For the famous games which appear in other books and anthologies, the authors have provided the most thorough and careful annotations you will find. They also include some extremely brilliant games which haven't received much attention elsewhere. ... Of the various 'Greatest Games' collections, The Mammoth Book of The World's Greatest Chess Games is the most up to date with the highest-quality annotations. You will want a copy on your shelf. * John Watson *
