World Chess Championship Book by Dylan Loeb McClain and Peter Svidler

Overview

In November 2014, Magnus Carlsen undertook his first title defense since winning the championship the year before. His challenger was Viswanathan Anand, the former champion that Carlsen had dominated to gain the crown. Could and would history repeat itself? Or could the former champion score an upset and add another notch to his list of victories? Set against the site of the match venue of the Olympic Village in Sochi, Russia, this book offers round-by-round coverage with game analysis by one of the world's foremost players, GM Peter Svidler, and overviews by Dylan Loeb McClain, former chess columnist for the New York Times.
