    Anyone read these and care to share your experience?
    I'd like to get peer opinions rather than the professional review.

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you talking about this

    Vladimir Kramnik and Iakov Damsky's 'Kramnik: My Life and Games'

    or the opening books written by Khalifman based on Kramnic's repetoire..?

    If its "Vladimir Kramnik and Iakov Damsky's 'Kramnik: My Life and Games" , I have it and I wasn't impressed. The translation is bad (Sample, one game is titled "This queen, who needs it?" ) and the notes aren't very informative.

    I have that book, not a fan either.


    I have heard the DVD by Kramnik for chessbase is excellent however. I am sure once Kramnik is less active professionally we will finally get a decent collection of games from him with his insights.

    Should've been more clear,my bad 🙁

    I meant "Kramnik: my life and games" by Kramnik/Damsky and "Khalifman: life and games" by Nesis.

    Guess the Kramnik one's already out.I can live with bad translation but do want decent notes.

    From London to Elista is better. Lots of good anecdotes from his seconds. The analysis is not bad either.

    True on the Bareev book- very good stuff.
