Review:

"Bareev’s account of the events is simply breathtaking (...) It is the most sincere portrait of a world champion I have ever read." -- ChessVibes

"Undisputably the best chess book of 2007 (...) A terrific read." -- Former Dutch Champion IM Gert Ligterink, de Volkskrant

"[A]bsolutely riveting (...) It is rare for anybody to have taken the lid off the day-to-day work that seconds do and still rarer for them to have made it so interesting (...) Extremely good." -- British Chess Magazine
