    Nearly everyone who has some decent experiance with chess has heard about Bobby Fischer and his mysterious behavior He is one of the best chess players in history and I bought the book recently to getinsight into his character and mind The book has about 400 pages and a littlethan a half consists of his biography from childhood up to 1972 Fischer Spassky Championship and the other part is 80 selected Fischer games with very good annotations and turnament results.The biography in it Nearly everyone who has some decent experiance with chess has heard about Bobby Fischer and his mysterious behavior He is one of the best chess players in history and I bought the book recently to getinsight into his character and mind The book has about 400 pages and a littlethan a half consists of his biography from childhood up to 1972 Fischer Spassky Championship and the other part is 80 selected Fischer games with very good annotations and turnament results.The biography in itself consists very little of Fischer s personal life, and majority of it are various turnament events and how well Fischer did at them I think it s well worth reading for people who have interest in Bobby Fischer, and would like to immitate his career to some extent The part that has put biggest imprint on my memory is when the author Bobby s early ...

    I had this book laying around for a few years but because I am interested in reading the recent follow up biography Endgame , also by Brady, I thought I should read this one first The events of Fischer s early years and rise to world champion chronicled in this volume are particularly sad knowing the decline and erratic behavior that only increased after the final events covered here take place All of Fischer s eccentricities and social awkwardness, even rudeness are here still excused as ind I had this book laying around for a few years but because I am interested in reading the recent follow up biography Endgame , also by Brady, I thought I should read this one first The events of Fischer s early years and rise to world champion chronicled in thi...

    Fascinating story of, in my mind, the greatest chessplayer of all time You may legitimately challenge this assertion but there is no doubt that he was the most influential player who ever picked up a pawn.This is probably the definitive bio on Bobby right up to his conquest of the world championship in 1972 It s probably a good thing that there is no sequel as his later years were marked by antisemitism, anti Americanism, and downward spiral into insanity Here we get to experience his precoci Fascinating story of, in my mind, the greatest chessplayer of all time You may legitimately challe...

    I liked how this was primarily a biography and not a book of annotated chess games It s apparent that the author is a fan of Bobby Fischer and also a personal acquaintance of the subject I enjoy reading books about singular individuals who accomplish amazing things, and this book fits that bill Thankfully, the book only covered the e...

    After Bobby Fischer s recent death, I reread Frank Brady s masterful telling of Fischer s solitary, willful ascent to the chess summit Conventional schooling was not designed for Fischer His disregard for political correctness and conventional soc...

    4.5 stars This was a fascinating look into one the life, motivations, psychology, and thrill of one of the best chess players in the history of the game The annotated games at the end were a great learning tool, as well.
