Product Description

“I recognize style. But you see, when I played a game with Bobby, there was no style. Bobby played perfectly. And perfection has no style.” - Grandmaster Miguel Najdorf

IM Donaldson examines Fischer’s life and career from his days as a child prodigy through the height of his World Championship triumph and into his tumultuous final years. Donaldson’s meticulous research has uncovered previously lost games and a wealth of unknown material about Fischer—ranging from his close friendships with players and supporters to his acrimonious relationships with organizers, journalists, lawyers, and publishers.
