Item description for Fischer World Champion!: Finally Available in English - The Acclaimed Classic About the 1972 Fischer-Spassky World Championship Match (New in Chess) by Max Euwe & Jan Timman...

In 1972 a boy from Brooklyn broke the hegermony of Soviet chess. Bobby Fischer, the greatest genius the game had ever see, completed his crusade against 'the commie cheaters' by defeating Boris Spassky in Reyjavik. The match of the Century electrified the world. Chess was front page news everywhere. No one wanted to miss a word, a move or even the slightest detail about the struggle of Bobby Fischer against the terrifying superpower that for decades had exploited its superiority in chess as an irrefutable justification of communism. The Cold War was still an everyday reality, and Fischer appealed to the masses. Bobby was handsome but lonely, brilliant but strange. Almost a year before the first move was made at the board, the infighting started. Fischer stood firm in his whims and wishes. The world looked on in anxiety and anticipation as Bobby quarreled about the venue, the number of games, the prize-fund, the television rights, the cameras, the lighting, the chairs. Would the match be played at all? The acclaimed classic Fischer World Champion conveys the full drama of the Fischer-Spassky clash, both on and off the board. Finally available in an English edition, it is a blow-by-blow account of the perplexing prelude to the match by the late Max Euwe, the then FIDE President. Euwe's diplomatic skills and iron will saved the match against incredible odds. Fischer World Champion! features the original analyses of the games by Jan Timman, one of the world's finest analysts. Fischer World Champion! will allow the reader to relive one of the great moments in chess history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fischer World Champion!: Finally Available in English - The Acclaimed Classic About the 1972 Fischer-Spassky World Championship Match (New in Chess)?

Not modified since 72  May 1, 2008
I was hoping for more thorough analysis like in Timman's Art of Chess Analysis, or that it might be updated with computers.

Also the Euwe part is quite boringly written.

It is still interesting with notes by the strongest player to annotate 72 match apart from Kasparov Vol 4 On Fischer.
 
Excellent book  Apr 11, 2008
I rarely read chess books cover to cover -- typically I just play through key games or use them for reference. But this one was different -- I found it interesting enough to go all the way through, game by game, start to finish.
