No chess player has received the worldwide recognition that Bobby Fischer achieved in his lifetime. His match for the World Championsbip with Boris Spassky in 1972 made Fischer a global figure. Today, Fischer is remembered as a flawed chess genius. Legend on the Road deals with Bobby before he had become a household name. His chess fame was already high with six U.S. Championships to his credit including a scintillating, record breaking score of 11 out of 11 in the 1963/64 tournament.

The big chance to see Bobby up close was Fischer's 1964 exhibition tour. Following in the footsteps of such legends as Capablanca and Alekhine, Bobby barnstormed the U.S. and Canada from coast to His entertaining lectures, high level of play and personable manner won many new admirers.

A Legend on the Road gives a comprehensive look at the tour with newspaper reports, magazine articles, personal reminiscences and plenty of games, many of which have never been published before. This second edition features new matial including a recently rediscovered exhibition in Indianapolis, first hand accounts from the San Francisco, Little Rock and Pittsburgh, several games, plus photos, artifacts as well as corrections. This book is a treasure trove for every Fischer fan.
