4.0 out of 5 stars
Well researched and written, worth a read, 20 Aug. 2014
This is a well researched and written book that probably concentrates a bit too much on the other things going on during the 1972 world championship match and not a lot on the chess, don't expect pages of moves or pictures of various positions. It does go into some detail on the two sides and the unfortunate Icelanders and it will reveal aspects of both Fischer's and Spassky's personalities that are quite revealing.
Overall worth a read as the book has a good tempo and the subject matter is interesting, my criticisms are that there's not enough chess in it and maybe a bit too much detail about extraneous personalitities particularly on the Soviet side.
