Grandmaster Andy Soltis, New York Post:
“Vladimir Kramnik provides the most candid analysis of a championship match ever made by a former champ.”
Dylan Loeb McClain, Editor-in-chief for the Organizers of the 2016 WC match, and former New York Times chess columnist:
“A masterful job – probably the best book on a championship that I have ever seen.”
Grandmaster Raymond Keene, The Times:
