- med undertitlen "The Five Kasparov - Karpov Matches for the World Chess Championship"

Rivalisering imellem de to "K´er" var gjort af et stof, der skaber historie. 5 matcher i perioden 1984-1990, med ialt 144 partier. Den yngre udfordrer imod den siddende mester. Angrebs skak imod positionel skak. Perestrojka slår systemets mand. En præsident for FIDE, der går ind og stopper en match begrundet i spillernes udmattelse. 

Min vurdering af målgruppen: bogen er en lækkerbidsken for historisk interesserede. Ikke mindst pga Timman´s egne iagttagelser "bag scenen". Men herudover kan bogens 50 partier stadig bruges som træning for selv de stærkeste spillere. Vi taler trods alt om partier med de to "K´er", og nu set på med friske øjne af Jan Timman.

Anmeldelser:

Johan Hut, Noord Hollands Dagblad:
"The ultimate book on Karpov – Kasparov. Jan Timman has again written a monumental history book on a subject that will continue to capture our imagination."

International Master Jeroen Bosch, Schaakmagazine:
"Timman, as a top grandmaster, rival and contemporary, is in an excellent position to make sense of the sometimes chaotic political rumpus, but as an ‘outsider’ he is able to be sufficiently objective. Again a splendid book from Jan Timman."

Grandmaster Matthew Sadler, former British Champion:
"There is something extremely satisfying about reading about events that you know well, and then discovering that you’ve forgotten or never noticed some important details! … I really like Timman’s annotations. Clear and concise, pointing out all the key moments in the game as well as some excellent positional instruction."

Sean Marsh, CHESS Magazine (UK):
"One of the must-buys of 2019, for sure. It can be enjoyed on several levels: the games are brought back to life due Timman’s new analysis and highly pertinent observations; the personal stories will be new to most readers; the background to each match is never less than fascinating, instructive and entertaining."

Carsten Hansen, American Chess Magazine:
"The book also discusses the behind-the-scenes drama of which casual observers will probably be unaware. A compelling read: you know the outcome, yet you are still glued to your seat, turning the pages, going through the games, almost as if you are watching the players in real time."
