"These three volumes contain my most memorable games of chess. Volume one covers the period before my early retirement, volume two the period after my return to the game and volume three my most recent games.
I am delighted with the support of Thinkers Publishing, and, of course, my wife, without whom these volumes would probably never have materialized. This is going to be my only work on chess, a subject that I feel I have learned enough about to share with you some of my knowledge." - Gata Kamsky.
