Autobiography of Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, President of the World Chess Federation ("FIDE") from 1995 to the Present. This is an amazing book because it describes the break-up of the Soviet Union and provides an autobiography of how a man realizing the huge changes in the process of taking place in Russian society was able to become a millionaire. Most of the public commentary about this book has been concerned with the title to Chapter 8: “It only takes two weeks to have a man killed”. However, this has been misrepresented out of context. The correct context is that in 1993, following the break-up on the Soviet Union, free elections were going to be held for the first time in Kalmykia. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, a young businessman, decided to run on the platform that he was going to abolish the KGB. This made a lot of people unhappy, especially the KGB, and Kirsan received a threatening telephone call.
