I found, my idol in chess (besides the late Bobby Fischer) had recently crushed 2 rising stars of Singapore. For the full story, click here

Among the books I posess (and also used to posess before I sold them due to the need of money) authored by him and authored by others about him are:

The Test of Time, Kasparov Fighting Chess, Kasparov Fighting Chess 1999-2005, Kasparov's Greatest Chess Games vol 1 and vol 2, Kasparov's Sicilian Strategy, The Caro Kann Classical 4...Bf5
