Of course you remember San Luis 2005, the tournament in which Vesilin Topalov conquered the world title! Of course you have not forgotten his sensational start with 6,5 out of 7! Now a big book has appeared about this tournament, written by GM Alik Gershon, together with Igor Nor. We have just stocked a good supply of this book, which has analyses of all the games, and full colour pictures throughout all 442(!) pages. San Luis 2005 has forewords by Topalov, Short and Marin, as well as an interesting chapter on the rumors and accusations of computer cheating which later sprang up. This looks like a book which belongs in every chess library.
