Endgame: Bobby Fischer's Remarkable Rise and Fall--From America's Brightest Prodigy to the Edge of Madness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Frank Brady, a friend and bestselling biographer of Bobby Fischer, comes an impressively researched biography that for the first time completely captures the remarkable arc of Bobby Fischer's life. When Bobby Fischer passed away in January 2008, he left behind a confounding legacy. Everyone knew the basics of his life--he began as a brilliant youngster, then became the pride of American chess, then took a sharp turn, struggling with paranoia and mental illness. But nobody truly understood him. From Fischer's meteoric rise, to a dominant prime unequaled by any American chess player, to his eventual descent into madness, the book draws upon hundreds of newly discovered documents and recordings and numerous firsthand interviews conducted with those who knew Fischer best. It paints for the first time a complete picture of one of America's most enigmatic icons.
