Bobby Fischer:

Profile of a Prodigy

Frank Brady October 5, 2011
Dover Publications

ISBN #978-0486259253

Copyright: 2011 - Dover Publications

Considered by many the most extraordinary phenomenon in the history of chess and perhaps the strongest player who ever played the game, Robert James "Bobby" Fischer is also, undeniably, one of the most controversial. His unusual demands during tournaments, off-the-board antics, and unexplained forfeiture of his world title have brought him a notoriety uncharacteristic of most chess champions. Both Fischer's chess brilliance and his uncommon behavior are explored in this comprehensive, carefully researched volume. Frank Brady, noted chess player, teacher, writer, and tournament director, has known Bobby Fischer since the latter was eleven years old. He has been present at various behind-the-scenes episodes in Fischer's tempestuous career, and discussed Fischer with many grandmasters, including several former world champions. That personal involvement adds a special dimension of intimate knowledge to this work.
