The Best of Chess Life and Review – Vol. 2


The brilliance and tumult of Bobby Fischer years changed the chess world forever. The highest-rated chess player and the only player to wrest the title from the Russians since 1937, Fischer, with his devastating play and tempestuous temperament, provided challenge and inspiration for an entire generation of chess players. Two decades after Fischer’s world championship victory, another dashing young upstart won the crown – Gary Kasparov. The Best of Chess Life and Review, Volume II, provides you with priceless coverage of the careers of both of these champions and many others, along with the instruction, history, lore, and artful diversions that fans of this magazine’s enduring value and entertainment have known and loved for over fifty years.
