Egic considerations the tactics and sometimes the blunders that occur during the pressure of tournament play He assesses his opponents’ BrilliantBobby Fischer is without uestion a chess geniusAs a person Fischer is an enigma He is a very high genius who as a young man exploded on the chess scene like a supernova He won the US Chess Championships at the age of 14 an amazing feat by itself but only the beginningHe is best known for his winning the World Championship from Boris Spassky in the 1970's While many know this they do not know how amazing that feat really wasInternational Chess is not the easiest forum to play in In the 1970's and before it was dominated by the Russians That is still true to some extent today but not like it was back in the 1970's Winning Chess tournaments where there were so many Russians involved was difficult especially because to put it nicely the Russians would work as a team to help their designated leaders win To put it not so nicely they would help each other so that they would create the result that they wanted Agreed upon draws after only a few moves were common Collaboration on adjourned games was commonBobby Fischer's accomplishment in winning the world championship in this setting is a testament to his brilliance and his perseverance Bobby played to win always A planned draw just wasn't in his natureAs an individual Bobby Fischer beat them on his own and he has never really been given the credit he deservedThat having been said Bobby Fischer has always been something of a recluse and for that reason the world has been robbed of his genius as he has dropped from the scene and arisen only occasionally to world noticeHe replayed Spassky and ran afoul of US immigration and has had legal problems since then Recently he turned up in Japan and last I heard was granted citizenship and asylum in Iceland where ironically he originally played Spassky back in the 70'sAll this is to say that this book represents Fischer's brilliance and unfortunately there are few other sources in which to find it in terms of his analysis and commentaryOther reviews refer to the reprints which have altered the original and so the discerning buyer should make sure he is getting an original Unfortunately they usually are not cheapIt is truly a gem and valuable for it's insight into chess as well as the rarity of its existence and being hard to findSay what you will about Fischer's social ualities there has never been his match in Chess and when you understand what he accomplished how passionate he was and is about Chess and how difficult his accomplishments were you have to just give him a tremendous amount of credit
