This new expanded edition of the award-winning Vishy Anand: My Best Games of Chess (New Edition) features 30 extra games from the period of Anand\''s greatest successes.

Anand has been one of the world\''s top players for more than two decades, and cemented his place in the all-time hall of fame by winning the unified World Championship in 2007, and successfully defending his title against Kramnik and Topalov. But it\''s not just his results that make Anand special. His style of play leads to highly spectacular games, and his speed of thought is the stuff of legends. He is also a great explainer of ideas, as his annotations for this book demonstrate. Anand is renowned as \''Mr Nice Guy\'', popular with both the public and his fellow supergrandmasters.

John Nunn, who collaborated with Anand on the original book, has annotated 30 games selected by Anand himself from the period 2001-2011. This new edition also features biographical information and a career record.

Viswanathan (Vishy) Anand comes from southern India and is the greatest chess-player of his generation. Having shot to fame as a child, playing master-standard chess at lightning speed, he became a grandmaster in 1987. Anand contested his first world championship match in 1995, and won the FIDE Championship in 2000. He has been World Champion since 2007, and has won many elite-level tournaments throughout his long career. Grandmaster John Nunn is a three-time World Chess Solving Champion, and is famous for the quality of his chess writing.
