Bobby Fischer zeichnet das einzigartige Leben eines der bekanntesten Schachgenies, seinen kometenhaften Aufstieg und sein bewegtes Privatleben nach. Schon mit 13 Jahren war Bobby Fischer der jüngste Schachmeister Amerikas. Seine späteren Erfolge verschafften ihm einen Grad an Ruhm, wie er kaum vorher einem Schachspieler zuteilgeworden war. Doch hinter dem Genie, das mit einem IQ von 181 gesegnet war, steckte ein komplizierter Charakter. Mit der Zeit entwickelte Bobby Fischer paranoide Züge: Nachdem er 1972 seinem Kontrahenten Boris Spasski den Weltmeistertitel abgenommen hatte, fürchtete er, dass die Sowjets ihn umbringen wollten. Sein Wahnsinn äusserte sich zudem in einem Hang zum Bizarren: Er begeisterte sich für die Mafia, schockierte mit antisemitischen Aussagen und war besessen von der Idee, seine Ausnahme-DNA weitervererben zu müssen. In diesem Buch erzählt Frank Brady die gesamte Lebensgeschichte des 2008 in Reykjavik verstorbenen Schachgenies, wobei er auf das Familienarchiv, auf private E-Mails Bobby Fischers und FBI-Akten zurückgreift. Sichtbar wird eine tragische Odyssee, die in armen Verhältnissen in Brooklyn beginnt und über den Schachweltmeistertitel in die Krankheit und bittere Einsamkeit führt. Niemand weiss heute mehr über das Leben und die Karriere von Schachgenie Bobby Fischer als Frank Brady. Er hat ihn kennengelernt, als Fischer zehn Jahre alt war, und erlebte einige seiner grössten Triumphe mit ihm. Brady ist Präsident des Marshall-Schachklubs und war Gründungsmitglied des Schachmagazins Chess Life. Er ist Professor für Kommunikationswissenschaft an der St. John's University in New York und Autor einiger von der Kritik gefeierter Biografien

The publisher : Paul Block : a life of friendship, power, and politics by Frank Brady( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Block virtually invented national newspaper advertising, as well as chain and syndicate publishing. He worked on, and shaped, the first Sunday newspaper supplement in the United States. He was the mastermind behind the magazine that enjoyed the largest circulation of any periodical in this country. His hundreds of signed, front-page editorials, from 1916 to 1941, on virtually every public issue of his day, were forceful commentaries that not only sold newspapers, but engineered and influenced legislation. The Publisher, the first biography of Paul Block, tells the story of his rise to the summit of American newspaper chains and chronicles his business and social relationship with William Randolph Hearst. The book reveals Block's influence not only on journalism, but also on the government and politics of his day."--Jacket
