Bobby Fischer was anti-Semitic, supported the 9/11 attacks, was a prolific tax evader, hid money in Swiss bank accounts and was a devoted follower of Herbert W. Armstrong. What a contrast to the genius he had at the chessboard - and the conceitedness he possessed when he demanded money up front to CONSIDER playing a chess match, let alone actually playing it. The more you learn about him, the more you'll wish you didn't - but it is still worth the read.

Written by a friend of Bobby's it is nonetheless a pull-no-punches biography. Very interesting and insightful.
