  1. Bobby Fischer: My 60 Memorable Games
    These quotes and games are from the book My 60 Memorable Games.

    Author's Preface

    The 60 games annotated in this volume were all played during 1957 through '67 and, with the exception of nos. 44 and 50, under strict tournament conditions. The notes frequently include reference to additional games, occasionally presenting them in full. An interested reader will find 34 of my earlier efforts in Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess (Simon and Schuster, 1959).

    All of the 60 here offered contain, for me, something memorable and exciting---even the 3 losses. I have tried to be both candid and precise in my elucidations in the hope that they would offer insights into chess that wil lead to fuller understanding and better play.

    Finally I wish to express my gratitude to Larry Evans, friend and colleague, for his invaluable aid in preparation of the text as well as for his lucid introductions.

    Robert J. Fischer
    New York City

    On the chessboard lies and hypocrisy do not survive long. The creative combination lays bare the presumption of a lie; the merciless fact, culmination in checkmate, contradicts the hypocrite.

  2. Garry Kasparov - Part One: Revolution in the 70s
    This book is the first in a brand new series which follows on from highly-acclaimed My Great Predecessors. In this fascinating volume chess legend Garry Kasparov examines the developments in chess in the 1970s. This was an era where the approach to chess underwent a radical shift - resulting in the laying of the foundations of modern day professional chess.

    During this time chess theory changed almost beyond recognition. Kasparov considers numerous different opening variations and shows how many positions were completely re-evaluated and how new ways of playing old openings were discovered. Furthermore, this revolution is described not only by Kasparov but also by many other wold class players who were at the forefront of this radical change in chess thinking.
