Books in use…

IM Koen Leenhouts from the Netherlands very kindly sent us the above photo with the caption: “Spent a couple of weeks with wonderful reading material🙂” And he added “The Anand Files however I found fascinating to read.”

Thanks for that. And we will forgive you for having two non-QC books out of the six.

The Anand Files features prominently in that photo, and is receiving fantastic reviews. For example: “The Anand Files is a triumph, beautifully written and accompanied by more than one hundred full-color photos. Abeln has done his subject justice and the only flaw in the work is that it ends.” John Hartmann, Chess Life

    I am wondering about buying “The Anand Files”. How similar in style is it to the recent book on Kramnik “The inside story of a chess genius”?, or is there more detail in the analysis of games.

    @John Christopher Simmons
    I think the game analysis is much more thorough in “The Anand Files”. The games seem much more like an important part of the book. I find my hand reaching more for the Anand book rather than the Kramnik one.

    Thanks, I finally did buy it. It’s huge, will enjoy going through it over the weekend.
