The World Chess Championship: Karpov/Kasparov Moscow 85

The World Chess Championship: Karpov/Kasparov Moscow 85 - Raymond Keene, Mark Taimanov Read it in my early childhood. Brought alive one of the greatest world championships ever, and certainly the greatest rivalry the chess world has ever seen, in an intense game-to-game analysis of the whole match, along with the 1984 match too. Full of tension, giving a peek into the minds of the players.
I remember attaching a sad streak with this book, because Karpov lost the match. Further testament to its emotional appeal.
