The Big Book of World Chess Championships
46 Title Fights – from Steinitz to Carlsen
by André Schulz

Publisher: New In Chess, 2015
Edition: Paperback medium
ISBN: 978-90-5691-635-0
Pages: 352
Language: English

Wilhelm Steinitz, the winner of the first official World Chess Championship in 1886, would have rubbed his eyes in disbelieve if he could have seen how popular chess is today.

With millions of players all around the world, live internet transmissions of major and minor competitions, and educational programs in thousands of schools, chess has truly become a global passion.

And what would Steinitz, who had financial problems his whole life and died in poverty, have thought of the current world champion, Magnus Carlsen, who became a multi-millionaire in his early twenties just by playing great chess?

The history of the World Chess Championship reflects these enormous changes, and Andre Schulz tells the stories of the title fights in fascinating detail: the historical and social backgrounds, the prize money and the rules, the seconds and other helpers, and the psychological wars on and off the board.

Relive the magic of Capablanca, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Tal, Karpov, Kasparov, Bobby Fischer and the others!

Andre Schulz has selected one defining game from each championship, and he explains the moves of the Champions in a way that is easily accessible for amateur players.

This is a book that no true chess lover wants to miss.

Andre Schulz is a respected German chess journalist. He is the editor-in-chief of the ChessBase newssite.

Karsten Müller, author of ‘Bobby Fischer, The Career and Complete Games’: “I like the selection of the games and the explanations are easy to understand and to the point. But the best part is how the story is told, complete with historical backgrounds and lots of anecdotes.”

Walter Eigenmann, Glarean Magazin:
“A new, entertaining and well-structured chronicle, suitable for all those chess friends who are more interested in real stories than in dry opening theory.”

Martin Breutigam, Berliner Tagesspiegel:
“Chess journalist Andre Schulz’s story covers a lot of ground over a wide period of time and is full of interesting facts and assessments.”

Uwe Bekemann, Deutscher Fernschachbund:
“Schulz handles his material very well and his style is that of a historiographical narrator. An excellent documentary book that every chess player should have who is not just interested in the game itself.”
