Kevin O'Connell was a former FIDE - World Chess Federation - zone President who was an expert in rules, ratings and archives. He was instrumental in collecting all traceable games by Bobby Fischer up to his conquest of the World Title in 1972. Bob Wade, twice British champion and for decades chief junior coach of the British Chess Federation, was one of the driving forces behind the explosion of chess in England which led to three team silver medals in the chess Olympiads of 1984, 1986 and 1988 and to a British player, Nigel Short, challenging for the world title in 1993.

Wade won the International Master title in his own right, and would doubtless have obtained a Grandmaster title under modern title stipulations.

If you are a fan of Bobby Fischer, then there is no excuse not to buy this book.
Robert Wade lays out the most extensive collection of Fischer's games that I've seen. Many of the games are annotated, which allows the reader to grasp a better understanding of Bobby's playing style. And in my opinion, no one produced more magic on the chess board than Bobby Fischer. So playing through these games is sure to educate the reader on how chess truly can (and should!) be played.
I have owned this book for about 6 years. And it is timeless. I find myself returning to it year after year for some enjoyable reading and chess insight. I have spent dozens of hours including my own notes and thoughts in the margins of this book. I definately consider it one of my favorite pieces in my chess book collection.

This is a great collection of Fischer's games. There isn't any anaylsis but that isn't always bad. I like the way the book is put together sort of like a tribute to Fischer. This is a reprint from the early 70's so everything is descriptive notation which is annoying to no end.

I like this book.
