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.
