ENDGAME Bobby Fischer's Remarkable Rise and Fall—From America's Brightest Prodigy to the Edge of Madness

by | Read by Ray Porter

Biography & Memoir • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

As a child, Bobby Fischer became obsessed with the game of chess, keeping company with talented players and playing daily to improve his game. He devoured books about strategy and descriptions of illustrious matches. As his fame grew after notable wins, so did his arrogance and chutzpah. The London DAILY MAIL wrote, “[Fischer] is the most ill-mannered, temperamental and neurotic brat ever to be reared in Brooklyn.” Bobby played aggressive tennis, swam, and had a lukewarm interest in women. Ray Porter narrates with a strong and forceful voice. He uses short pauses between words to emphasize the author’s points. Pronouncing the abundant Russian and Hungarian names with comfort, he lends a welcome authenticity to an introspective biography. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
