Publisher: Ishi Press Author: Bobby FischerYear of Publication: 2008(2nd)
Pages: 128 Notation Type: Descriptive (DN)
This is the only book ever written entirely by Bobby Fischer. It is not to be confused with other books with similar names that were written by other authors.
Here is the blurb on the original dust jacket, as published in 1959:
THERE ARE 34 games in this book. The 13 from the U.S. Championship Tournament of 1957-58 and the prize-winning "Game of the Century" from the Third Rosenwald Trophy Tournament are penetratingly analyzed by Bobby Fischer, whose annotations provide invaluable instructions to the chess player of either average or advanced ability. In addition, this book includes the scores of Bobby Fischer's 20 games from the 1958 Portoroz Interzonal Tournament in which he played against the world's elite in chess, among them Tal, Gligorich, Petrosyan, and Bronstein.
The games in this book reveal Bobby Fischer's brilliance in middle and end-game strategy, and also the latest and soundest treatments of popular openings-in particular, the Sicilian and King's Indian defenses. By playing these games over, the reader will become familiar with the patterns of the latest and soundest lines in chess, and will automatically begin to make stronger moves in his own games.
At the age of fifteen, Bobby Fischer is the youngest international grandmaster of all time. He lives in Brooklyn, is a junior at Erasmus Hall High School, and is looking forward to the 1959 Candidates' Tournament, the winner of which challenges Mikhail Botvinnik for the world championship.
