Timman’s Titans is the most informative, interesting and revealing book on the world champions covered, both as people and chess players.

From the Judges’ Report of the ECF Book of the Year on Timman’s Titans

Quite inspirational. I was thinking at several points during the game [in Round 11 of the 2019 Tata Steel Chess Tournament]: how would AlphaZero have approached this?

Magnus Carsen on Game Changer

One of the most original chess books the judges have seen for a number of years (..) both serious and highly entertaining at the same time.
