In December 2012 Magnus Carlsen won the prestigious London Chess Classic and in doing so he became the highest-rated chess player in the history of the game, beating Garry Kasparov's 13-year-old record. Carlsen followed up this performance with another phenomenal tournament win at Wijk aan Zee, pushing his peak rating to an astronomical 2872. He didn't lose a single game in either tournament. What is Carlsen's secret? How did an already world-class player succeed in reaching this unprecedented level where he was regularly beating the world's strongest grandmasters? In this book, International Master Colin Crouch provides answers to these questions. Crouch studies Carlsen's progress in recent years and demonstrates how he learned lessons from previous setbacks, turned weaknesses into strengths, losses into draws, and draws into wins. By doing so Carlsen was able to elevate his play to a stratospheric level, but any aspiring chess player can use similar methods to improve their game. *The story of Carlsen's record-breaking performances *In-depth analysis of Carlsen's games *Learn from the World's number one player

Reviews

It's typical of Colin Crouch to produce such an original work. Most authors would head for the safe shores of the feel-good factor in the run-up to a title match and overemphasise the positive, but Crouch presents a fascinating study of a remarkable player, warts and all. - CHESS Magazine Crouch is one of my favorite modern-day writers. He is diligent, comprehensive, and on point. He provides plenty of background with regard to the circumstances in which a game was played, the tournament situation, and any psychological factors that may have played a part. Crouch draws the reader, as much as any outside observer probably can, into what is going on in the minds of the players, and provides a clear explanation of what is happening over-the-board. - ChessCafe.com
