This review is from: SAN LUIS 2005: How Chess Found Its Champion (Paperback)
While I am not a good enough player to comment on the annotations I can comment on everything else about this book. It is lavishly illustrated, reasonably well bound, huge and one of the most impressive looking chess books I've ever seen. For what its worth the notes are copious and well spaced. The games feature large, clear diagrams and the cost is more than reasonable. Its a pity that there isn't a hard cover version but other than that the book is beyond reproach in this day of Informator style notes. If the notes are of the quality of the rest of the book this book will in time rival Bronsteins Zurich 1953, if not it will remain as a wonderful record of the strongest tournament of recent times. Great to see tournament books returning.

I found "San Luis 2005" to be absolutely brilliant both in scope and breadth, and I've read hundreds of chess books in my time. There is no better tournament book. Gershon & Nor's analysis is deep enough to keep interest, with diagrams and photos adding to interest. I couldn't put it down. For those who find this book gripping but seek even deeper tournament analysis then I can really recommend Bareev & Levitov's "From London to Elista"
