About the author

Biography of Fischer, Bobby

Chess Grandmaster Bobby Fischer was born Robert James Fischer in Chicago, Illinois on March 9, 1943. He became the U. S. junior chess champion at the age of 13, the U. S. open chess champion at the age of 14, and a Chess Grandmaster at the age of 15. In 1972, he became the first American to win the World Championship title by defeating Boris Spassky. In 1975, the FIDE, the international chess federation, refused to meet his conditions for a World Championship match with Anatoly Karpov.

He forfeited his title because he refused to play. In 1992, he played an exhibition rematch against Spassky in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. However, this match led to a conflict with the United States government because Yugoslavia was under a strict United Nations embargo and Fischer never returned to the United States. He died of kidney failure on January 17, 2008.

Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Infinitely Valuable Tool for ANY Chess Player! I had little basic knowledge and great frustration regarding Chess play for many years . . . NEVER thought a book could do SO MUCH in such a short time. After just my first initial read-through, I UNDERSTAND with clarity and have not only CONFIDENCE but a "Burning Desire" to enthusiastically engage what I've learned!!! I can truly say I thoroughly ENJOYED "reading" this book and will keep re-reading it! 07/25/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Great for the Novice, Terrible for the Expert This book wasn't that great for me because it is just not that challenging. I have had years of time playing and learning the game however and this book just didn't have what I expected. This book would be great for someone just starting out or a casual player who doesn't play in tournaments. I bought the book online and picked it up on a tuesday from site to store. I finished the entire book in less than four hours. It just isn't made for serious players because the questions are just way too easy but like I said someone who just started out would be wise to buy this book I mean after all IT IS ONLY 7$ WITH TAX!!! and It will improve a beginners play alot. 3 out of ten for me but for a beginner I would give it a 10 out of 10. 12/12/2009
