Summary

Bobby Fischer: The Early Years (1943 – 1962) covers the formative years of one of the greatest players ever. Particular attention is focused on years from 1956 to 1958 when Fischer went from an 1800 rated player to one of the best in the world. The reasons for this dramatic jump in strength are analyzed and unpublished training games from this period appear for the first time.

The unfinished match with Sammy Reshevsky is also covered in depth. Not only are several of the games heavily annotated, but many original documents and photos are given for what is arguably the most famous match ever played between two Americans players.

Bobby Fischer: The Early Years (1943 – 1962), the first in a two part series on Bobby Fischer's life (and the fourth in a five volume series written by John Donaldson and Eric Tangborn), is a must for all die-hard Fischer fans who want to learn more about this fascinating player.

Bobby Fischer: The Later Years (1963 – 2008) covers the critical period leading up to Fischer's winning the World Championship and the dark years that followed. The first half of the book deals with the road to the title starting with Fischer's last Swiss system tournaments: the 1963 Western and New York State Opens. Particular attention is focused on his Candidate Matches with Mark Taimanov, Bent Larsen and Tigran Petrosian.

The second half of the book deals with Fischer's life after winning the crown. Among the highlights are Bobby’s fascination with chess computers, his lawsuit with Brad Darrach, the visits to San Francisco and the rematch with Boris Spassky. The latter includes an in depth look at the training games he played with Svetozar Gligoric and Eugenio Torre prior to facing Spassky.

A detailed analysis of Fischer's handling of the Black-side of the Maroczy Bind is given, as is a critical examination of his charges that the Kasparov – Karpov matches were rigged.

Bobby Fischer: The Later Years (1963 – 2008), the second in a two part series on Bobby Fischer's life (and the final volume in a five book series written by John Donaldson and Eric Tangborn), is a must for all die-hard Fischer fans who want to learn more about this fascinating player.
