Abstract:

At 13 years of age Bobby Fischer was the youngest chess master in US history, but the brilliant boy with the genius IQ would spend his adult life struggling with paranoia and mental illness. When he passed away in January 2008, he left behind a confounding legacy. What motivated him from such a young age, and what was the source of his remarkable intellect?
