This volume records every serious game accessible to the editors (some previously unpublished) that Bobby Fischer has played since 1955, when as a boy of twelve his games began to appear in print. A large proportion of the 660 complete games included have notes on critical variations and twenty of Fischer's most important encounters have been annotated in depth by Bob Wade; these are supported by over 700 diagrams of key positions. The book also contains numerous tournament tables and records, as well as an index of total results against every opponent. This second edition of this monumental volume has been updated to include every traceable serious game (nearly 700 in all) that Bobby Fischer has played from 1955 to the 1972 World Championship.
