Kasparov is an intense, sincere, obviously enormously intelligent person. However his tone of insistence, and his harsh English give an impression of irritation. He is smiling and not really smiling.
He also speaks to Rose a bit about chess, about popularizing it in America. He speaks about 'Deep Blue' the machine- program that defeated him, and reports on the irresponsible, perhaps even criminal act of 'Deep Blue's ' programmers who destroyed completely their records after the match with Kasparov.
This was an informative segment if not an especially enjoyable one. It is of course a 'must' for all chess- lovers. In the last few minutes Kasparov speaks with Rose about his five - volume anthology - history of the great chess- masters, and their contributions to the game.
