Books Info:

Endgame free pdf At 13 years of age Bobby Fischer was the youngest chess master in US history, but the brilliant boy with the genius IQ would spend his adult life struggling with paranoia and mental illness. When he passed away in January 2008, he left behind a confounding legacy. What motivated him from such a young age, and what was the source of his remarkable intellect? What drew this man of Jewish descent to fulminate against Jews, and how was it that a mind so famously disciplined could unravel so completely? Acclaimed biographer Frank Brady first met Fischer when the prodigy was just 10 years old, and shared with him some of his most dramatic triumphs. In this account, decades in the making, Brady traces the meteoric ascent - and confounding descent - of this enigmatic genius, drawing on first-hand interviews with those who knew Fischer best as well as hundreds of newly discovered documents and recordings from the Fischer family archives, recently released FBI files, and Bobby's own emails. Endgame tells, for the very first time, the definitive story of Bobby Fischer - a figure as exotic and improbable as any American pop culture has yet produced.
