    Book DescriptionChess devotees simply can't get enough of Bobby Fischer. Every facet of his personality and his play unfolds in this biographical study. In addition to analyzing his exceptional talent, it captures and puts into perspective his tough youth, anti-social tendencies, fights against the chess authorities, and growing mental illness. There's also extensive information from recently opened FBI files about Fischer, and a discussion of a low point: when Fischer cheered the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
