Keene's Latest "Book"

World Chess Championship - Kramnik Vs Leko 2004
Ray Keene
157 pages, Hardinge Simpole

Less than 10 days after the match ended the book of the tournament has already hit the shelves

I have been racking my brain but have been completely unable to figure out any scenario in which this is a good thing. A world championship match, and the book is out in 10 days? Superficial-analysis much? If I wanted silly superficial inaccurate off-the-cuff analysis with no depth, I'd analyze the games myself. Keene has been an obscene hack for a long time, but this just takes the cake. What a joke!
