From London to Elista offers a fascinating look behind the scenes of chess at the highest level. It features first-class analysis of all the games by Bareyev and much more. In Socrates-style dialogues, Bareyev and co-author Ilya Levitov reveal everything about the preparation, the process and the aftermath, the secret strategy and the brutal stress of the three matches.

This rich book is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn more about what makes top grandmasters tick. It is a first-hand account and is full of honesty, irony, history, humor, anger, wisdom and even poetry.

Yevgeny Bareyev is one of the strongest grandmasters in the world today. He was Kramnik's second during the matches against Kasparov in 2000 and Leko in 2004, and was in close contact with Kramnik's team during the scandal-plagued unification match against Topalov in Elista.

Professional journalist Ilyu Levitov has been an enthusiastic amateur chess player all his life. He is a close friend of Vladimir Kramnik and Yevgeny Bareyev.
