There are many more books about and by Karpov.
If anyone is interested, I can upload them.
By the way, it was Karpov's bad luck to have held the throne between two charismatic icons of the game, Fischer and Kasparov.
However, with the passing of time his greatness as a most accomplished positional champion becomes clearer and clearer, and a study of his games is most rewarding.
On the other hand, some of this books were apparently ghost-written, and are of low quality, unfortunately.

I recently received a copy of Chess is My Life, which was co-written along with Aleksandr Roshal (he probably wrote the entire book).

The book portrays Karpov is a very flattering light.  Almost sickening in its praise! The chapters regarding the 1974 Candidates' Final (especially, chapter 4) pretty much character assassinate Victor Korchnoi. No wonder he left the Soviet Union. Botvinnik is not very kind to Korchnoi in his comments either. Not a very fair portrayal considering Korchnoi lost by the slimmest margin, 12.5-11.5 in 1974.

A very disappointing read.

@FutureJim
Is it possible to upload the list of the games analyzed in the book?
Are there new games or the same games that exist in his other best games collections?

I will post a list of the games for you when I return home (currently completing a site plan in southern Saskatchewan, Canada). Many of the games (in descriptive notation) have no notes.

Thanks to the original uploader! sunny





Anatoly Karpov: His Road to the World Championship by M. M. Botvinnik (1-Sep-1978) Paperback Paperback – 1600
by M. M. Botvinnik (Author)

Product details
Paperback
Publisher: Pergamon Press; First Edition edition (Sept. 1978) (1600)
ASIN: B013J92CHW


An Amazon reader:

"I purchased this book recently at a local used book store, just a few blocks away from the University of Chicago campus: Thus, it can be found though it may take some effort. Nonetheless, if you manage to find it, you will think your toil well rewarded, for this is an excellent book---one of the great Botvinnik's last works. It features good analysis of some of the most well know and studied games in the history of chess---for example, Polugaevsky Karpov, 2nd match game and Karpov Spassky 8th and llth match games. The author and interesting subject matter make this a worthwhile read."
