New Book Just Out: Elista Diaries, updated to include games from the
2007 World Chess Championship

http://www.ishipress.com/elista.htm

This classic work, considered to be one of the best match chess books
ever written, has been expanded to 414 pages to include an in depth
analysis of all the games from the Anand-Karpov Match and four of the
games that carried Anand to the World Chess Championship in Mexico
City in September 2007.

The book is available now from Ishi Press and will be available in a
few days from Amazon at well at:
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0923891978

Elista Diaries by Anatoly Karpov and GM Ron Henley provides a brief
biography and a deep analysis of at least two games played by every
player ever to win the World Chess Championship: Steinitz, Lasker,
Capablanca, Alekhine, Euwe, Botvinnik, Smyslov, Tal, Petrosian,
Spassky, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov. It also analyzes all the games
played by Kamsky and Karpov leading up to their world championship
match and then is analyzes the games of that match, the Anand-Karpov
match and four of the games from Mexico City 2007.

Elista Diaries is reviewed by Jeremy Silman on his website:

"This is one of the best three match books I've ever seen (Tal's book
on his 1960 match with Botvinnik is the best, Yasser's wonderful
account of the Fischer-Spassky rematch has dropped to third behind
this Karpov masterpiece); it gives more than full value for those who
wish to analyze chess games, and it gives more than full value to
those who simply wish to read about chess history (past and present).
I loved it and I think that you will too. Give it a try and let me
know what you think!"

Elista Diaries is now for sale on Amazon at
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0923891978

It is also for sale on my website at

I believe that Elista Diaries will come to be regarded as the best
chess book ever written. It has everything: Biographies and pictures
of every world champion, at least two deeply analyzed games played by
every world champion, and the games of two world championship matches
played by Karpov, all deeply analyzed.
