"Notions of chess have been shattered by a teen-age Hungarian girl - some call her modest and soft-spoken, but many opponents know her as a ferocious tiger over the board - who after years of steady progress began breathing down the necks of the top men and now has broken the barrier of one of the worlds most exclusive clubs: she has earned the rank of grandmaster at 15 years, 5 months, one month younger than Bobby Fischer when he did it 34 years ago." New York Times, 1992 Great achievements often take a lifetime of preparation, but when these achievements are becoming the World Number 1 woman chess player at the age of 12 and the youngest ever grandmaster at the age of 15 you have to start early! In this very personal book Judit Polgar describes her early moments of success and the chess ideas she needed to master to achieve them. This exceptional book is the beginning of a unique project where one of the greatest players of our time transforms her personal journey to the top into a roadmap for everyone who ever wanted to better themselves in the game of chess.

The inspiration for the iconic film, this memoir by the father of a prodigy reflects on chess, competition, and childhood. Fred Waitzkin fell in love with chess during the Cold War–era showdown between Russian champion Boris Spassky and young American superstar Bobby Fischer. Twelve years later, Waitzkin’s own son, Joshua, discovered chess in Washington Square Park and began displaying the telltale signs of a prodigy. Soon, crowds gathered to watch the six-year-old, calling him a “Young Fischer.” An unstoppable player, little Josh was suddenly catapulted into the intense world of competitive chess. When Josh first sat down at a chessboard, he was a charming, rambunctious, rough-and-tumble child. Within weeks, he was playing the game with poise and constrained violence, as if there were a wise old man plotting moves inside him. Then, renowned coach Bruce Pandolfini discovered Josh in the park and began to refine the child’s game. In Searching for Bobby Fischer, Waitzkin recounts his journey with his son into the world of chess, from the colorful milieu of street hustlers to the international network of grandmasters. Looming large over their story is the elusive Bobby Fischer, whose mysterious disappearance from the chess world created a vacuum that would profoundly affect young Josh and his dad. Josh went on to win eight national championships before he turned twenty—but his achievements did not come without cost. In this memoir, Waitzkin explores his love and ambition for Josh, who faces pressures far beyond his years. Even as father and son travel to Moscow to watch Kasparov challenge Karpov, Waitzkin doubts his own motives: Is he pushing his son too hard? Is the game a joy to Josh, or is he just fulfilling his father’s wishes? Searching for Bobby Fischer is about more than chess. “A little gem of a book,” it is ultimately about the struggle we all face to love our families and do right by them while also setting our own paths as individuals (The New York Times).

This is an exact reproduction of the original 1969 classic work, "My 60 Memorable Games" by Bobby Fischer. Unfortunately, there have been many efforts by other authors and contributors to "improve" on Fischer's work by converting the text into algebraic notation and then correcting what they thought were mistakes in analysis. It turned out that what they thought were mistakes by Fischer were mistakes by themselves. Fischer's analysis was correct. Theirs was wrong. As a result, Fischer famously went on the radio to denounce those who claimed to have improved on his work. Even since his death, new editions have come out promising that there have been no changes from the original, but researchers have discovered hundreds of changes in the new editions that supposedly contain no changes. The book in your hands contains no changes at all on the inside of this book. Even a typo on the first page has been preserved.

The return in 1992 of American Grandmaster Bobby Fischer against his old rival Boris Spassky has reawakened interest in the games of one of the most determined World Champions of all time. To Fischer, chess is a highly competitive sport which requires not only meticulous opening preparation, a high state of tactical alertness and perfect technique, but also a constant striving for the initiative, immense will to win and even calculated risk-taking. In 1972, when he won the supreme crown, he was years ahead of his time in his chess understanding and he influenced the way competitive chess is played today. Now he is back, all chess enthusiasts will be able to compare Fischer with the younger generation such as Kasparov and Short, neither of whom has played a single competitive game against the enigmatic American. By studying the deeply researched and thematically arranged material in this book, players of all strengths will change their attitude towards the game and improve their own play.

Endgame is acclaimed biographer Frank Brady's decades-in-the-making tracing of the meteoric ascent-and confounding descent-of enigmatic genius Bobby Fischer. Only Brady, who met Fischer when the prodigy was only 10 and shared with him some of his most dramatic triumphs, could have written this book, which has much to say about the nature of American celebrity and the distorting effects of fame. Drawing from Fischer family archives, recently released FBI files, and Bobby's own emails, this account is unique in that it limns Fischer's entire life-an odyssey that took the Brooklyn-raised chess champion from an impoverished childhood to the covers of Time, Life and Newsweek to recognition as 'the most famous man in the world' to notorious recluse.

A Look into Bobby's MindFrom December 1966 until January 1970, Bobby Fischer wrote a chess column for Boys' Life, the official magazine of the Boy Scouts of America. Now, for the first time, all of these columns have been collected in one volume. It is an eclectic mix, a fascinating look at Fischer's writing and thinking as he reached his prime, maturing into the strongest player in the world.In these columns, he answers many readers' questions - from basic to sophisticated. His answers provide a unique glimpse into Fischer's thinking at the chessboard. The time period covered in these columns was one of the most critical in Fischer's career. It was during this time period that his opus magnum, My Sixty Memorable Games, was released. And as player, he grew from one of a few super-grandmasters to the best player in the world. The only thing missing was an actual title match. That of course would soon come.These columns are a diverse collection of tips for players, comments on playing, annotated games and casual observations. The games and annotations are presented in modern English algebraic notation. As Andy Soltis notes in his foreword, "You read [Fischer's Boys' Life columns] to see what was going on in that remarkable mind. As quirky as Checkmate was, these columns tell us a lot."

There have been more books written about Bobby Fischer than any other player in history so why another book? The Unknown Bobby Fischer is really four books in one. On the one hand it is a detailed look at Fischer's formative years when he went from a struggling class B player to US Open Champion in the space of two years! Published accounts of the time, reminiscences and rare photos serve to shed light on a part of Bobby's career that is rarely examined. Fischer is not the only subject of this book. The 1950s were a golden time for American chess. The Byrne brothers, William Lombardy, Raymond Weinstein, Edmar Mednis, Arthur Bisguier, Larry Evans ... The list of strong players coming up alongside Bobby goes on and on. The Unknown Fischer examines some of these players and lesser-known stars of the day like Charles Kalme, Larry Remlinger, Anthony Saldy and Abe Turner. Read about outrageous organizers like the legendary E. Forry Laucks of the Log Cabin Chess Club. A Legend on the Road (see above) looked at Bobby's 1964 Transcontinental Exhibition tour in great depth. The 124 page book, which was published in 1995, prompted a flood of letters from readers. Now IMs Donaldson and Tangborn offer the reader more than 40 pages of new material on the tour, including 17 recently rediscovered games from Bobby's exhibition in Wichita. All told The Unknown Bobby Fischer offers the reader 87 games, many with heavy annotations. 37 of these games have never appeared in book form. This book finishes with rare interviews and an in-depth look at the large body of literature surrounding Bobby. The authors present their top ten favorite books on Bobby in English and offer the reader an extensivebibliography for further research. Useful player and ECO indices round out the perfect gift for the die-hard Fischer fan or anyone just interested in a slice of American chess history.
