    CLEARANCE - Bobby Fischer for Beginners
    The Most Famous Chess Player Explained
    Catalog Code: B0090NIC

    Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all.

But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.
