Review: From London to Elista

This is a great book. Here's a very brief excerpt of my review at ChessCafe:

Imagine sitting in on all the practices, film analysis and strategy sessions of a Super Bowl team for the two weeks prior to the championship game, and then sitting with the team during the game itself. You would have the kind of inside access football fans would love to experience but precious few actually do.

This inside access is what From London to Elista provides. For a chess world championship, both combatants develop teams of advisors, trainers, doctors, even chefs and psychics, to provide every edge possible, and to form and test ideas prior to and during the incredibly stressful championship match.

This review is available until about March 11, 2008 at the link above. It is also available in the ChessCafe archives.
