    Incredible book

    If you like his "My Great Predecessors" series, you'll love this one, it's even better! I'm about 3/4 through it already and it's exciting, i feel as if I'm at the matches. Kasparov's writing style just makes the games more intense. As usual, I don't go through all of the very deep analysis, but if you're at that level (I was about a 2100 player at my best) to do so, it is there.
    I can't see a serious chess fan being without this book.
