Last year Anatoly Karpov turned 64 the significance of that number is not lost on chess fans. I for one found it hard to believe. Was it so long ago that we saw a slim young man from Urals confronting Boris Spassky for the first time and beating him hands down? I still remember his supremely nonchalant look as the game wasabout to begin. No sign of tension whatsoever. Ironically enough,chess public was not reconciled to his subsequent success.

Karpov picked and annotated these games himself. I suspect he included some to dispel the notion that he was a dry, positional player only.

Karpov's quiet arrogance becomes annoying at times the usual chessplayer nonsense. And the notes aren't always any too comprehensive. But anyway, a number of wonderful games here, and some of them are annotated very well indeed. The book had a good number of mistyped moves and analytical mistakes. How is it possible that Karpov's book, when there was no computer assistance available, is so much sounder than this one?
