Garry Kasparov attempts to demystify the Fischer legend with a hard critical look at some key games. In this regard this is probably the best book yet written on Fischer's games.

However, half of the book is devoted to Reshevsky, Najdorf, and Larsen. Furthermore he lapses into making a case for Karpov in the proposed Fischer v Karpov match. He piles it on so thick that you feel he loses all objectivity in his attempt to protect his own legacy from the Fischer legend. Format: Hardcover. Kasparov's latest addition to his "great predecessors" series may seem at first glance like the best thing since sliced bread.
It is the eagerly awaited version that features analysis on many of Fischer's great games up to his famous world championship win over Boris Spassky. The second half of the book concerns itself with Bobby Fischer, arguably the greatest chess grandmaster to grace the game until Kasparov himself came along and it is a treat to view the analysis of one great player by another, though i have read elsewhere that the main contribution of analysis actually comes from Dmitry Plisetsky.
How true this is i do not know.
Kasparov's comments about Fischer's contribution to chess and his personality are both entertaining and illuminating and it is nice to learn something of the biographies of other greats such as Reschevsky. Personally speaking much of the analysis, as a weak to average club player, is rather beyond me and the collections of games are more of an interest piece than likely to improve your chess dramatically.
I feel however that strong players may pick up ideas of interest in Fischer's games. However Fischer's "my 60 most memorable games" now sadly out of print is already held to be on of the best chess books money can buy. One need only run a search on Amazon to see how much second hand volumes of this work command.
However those who have read and digested most of the key ideas of this may find additional nuggets in Kasparov's analysis. The volume however is presented in an attractive hard-cover and is likely to find its way on to the bookshelfs of most chess affecianados. Having not read the other books in the series it is difficult to compare, but it seems likely that the next volume on Karpov may prove to be the most interesting. See all 4 customer reviews.

I don't think we have to agree with every opinion or speculation in a book to recognize that book's obvious general quality. After this, he more or less gave up chess, playing only once, a "return" match against Spassky in In this book, a must for all serious chess players, Kasparov deeply analyzes Fischer's greatest games and assesses the legacy of this great American genius.

Alekhine had a combinative gift and thrilled the chess The climax of Fischer's campaign was his unforgettable match win in Reykjavik in against Boris Spassky. However, Fischer is not only remembered for his achievements over-the-board, he is almost equally well-known for his temperamental behavior away from the board.
