Description
During the summer of 1972, the Soviet world chess champion, Boris Spassky, and American challenger Bobby Fischer met in Reykjavik, Iceland, for the most notorious chess match of all time. Played against the backdrop of the Cold War, their showdown held the world spellbound for two months with reports of psychological warfare, ultimatums, and farce. Thirty years later, the bestselling authors of Wittgenstein's Poker set out to re-examine the story, and in this history they assess the political brinksmanship of the era and deconstruct the myth of the brilliant but eccentric Bobby Fischer.

"Although the competition has achieved iconic status, [David] Edmonds and [John] Eidinow do an excellent job of making the story fresh, recreating the atmosphere of controversy that surrounded both players.... This highly entertaining account will surprise and delight."Publishers Weekly
