Summary
Frank Brady chronicles the brilliant yet troubled life of iconic chess master Bobby Fischer. An enigmatic genius, Fischer is best remembered for defeating Soviet chess champion Boris Spassky in 1972. However, the victory was overshadowed by the exorbitant demands Fischer made before the match and his subsequent descent into irrelevance. A rematch with Spassky in 1992 put Fischer back in the spotlight, but also got him into trouble with the American government
Summary
From an author who wrote one of the bestselling Bobby Fischer books ever and who was himself a friend of Fischer's comes an impressively researched biography that for the first time captures the complete, remarkable arc of the life of the chess master
