I am currently reading a book called Mortal Games: The Turbulent Genius of Garry Kasparov. I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in chess. It was written by Fred Waitzkin, the same guy who wrote Searching For Bobby Fischer. It doesn't have any games in it....it just explores the mental and physical preparations that Kasparov went through for Kasparov-Karpov V. It makes for very good reading, and despite the fact that it doesn't show any games, it may be helping me out a tiny little bit, just by giving a glimpse into how grandmasters think. It may be a little hard to find in a local bookstore because it was actually published in England, but I found my copy on Ebay. Definitely worth the search for anyone interested.
