New Kasparov Book Out

Revolution in the 70's, Part 1 of Kasparov's new series of chess books (Modern Chess Series) came out a couple of weeks ago. I've read all the text and played through a couple of the games; quite interesting. I think I like it even better than the My Great Predecessors series.

Here's a Chess Cafe interview with Kasparov regarding recent changes in his plans for the series. Right now it seems like after "Revolution" he's going to do two volumes on his games with Karpov, two volumes on his selected best games, and a book on Man vs Machine. Also, he's going to do an additional book in the MGP series consisting just of anecdotes, no chess. He says this makes a total of 13 books in both series, but by my count it's just 12.

I finally figured out why it's 13 - Kasparov's plans to expand volumes 1 and 2 to include more material on all the challengers will turn the two volumes into three.
