Description: 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.
