“A masterful job – probably the best book on a championship that I have ever seen.”
- Dylan Loeb McClain, Editor-in-chief for the Organizers of the 2016 WC match, and former New York Times chess columnist
“Lev Alburt and Jon Crumiller have combined forces with former world champion Vladimir Kramnik to produce a deeply considered account of Magnus Carlsen’s narrowly successful title defence against Sergei Karjakin in New York last year. The analysis produces the last word on what both did and should have transpired in every game while color photos convey a vivid impression of the visual aspects of the competition.”
- Grandmaster Raymond Keene OBE, New York Times
“Vladimir Kramnik [provides] the most candid analysis of a championship match ever made by a former champ.”
- Grandmaster Andy Soltis, New York Post

Terrible bad printing quality! Very low resolution and blurred printed photos.
Also, the analysis are too short... A lot of important comments are missing...
This bad result is the opposite everyone would expect, since the team count on the help of very strong player and former World Champion Kramnik, besides great photo specialists, such as Maria Emilianova and Albert Silver...
It may be due to the publisher's fault...
If you look at the previous similar book ("Carlsen's Assault on the Throne", Kotronias 2013) you will understand what I am talking about...
