Gata Kamsky was born on the 2nd of June 1974 in Siberia, Russia. At the age of six he moved to Leningrad, where he became a student of the renowned trainer Vladimir Zak. He moved to the USA in 1989. He is a graduate of Brooklyn College and the Touro Law Center in New York. He became a Grandmaster at the age of sixteen, is a five-time US Champion and six-time US Olympiad team member, was the 1996 FIDE World Championship challenger, 2007 FIDE World Cup Winner and 2010 World Rapid Chess Champion. He was inducted into the World Chess Hall of Fame in 2016.

"These two volumes contain my most memorable games of chess. Volume 1 covers the period before my early retirement and Volume 2 the period after my return to the game.

The annotations are an attempt to search for the truth and reveal the workings of a Grandmaster's mind. The introductions are designed to show the reader what I thought, felt and experienced at the time and during each game. I sometimes share my personal opinions on things like politics and my philosophy of life.

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."
