A wondeful collection of interviews with the greatest chess players you can imagine. A few quotes to characterize this book: "This may not sound modest, but the first three volumes of my collected games are requiered reading" - Botvinnik. "Intuition is much more important than knowledge" - Smyslov "I guess that I am continuing Fischer`s fight" -Kasparov. The encounter with Fischer on the Yugoslav island Sveti Stefan is the apotheosis of this unique anthology. Bound, 256 pages 'Fischer gets up, tall, overweight, and slightly clumsy. He tries to fulfil the duties of the host and shakes hands, but his nervously darting eyes betray his unease with the situation. This is not a man accustomed to receiving visitors.' Dirk Jan ten Geuzendam's gripping encounter with legendary recluse Bobby Fischer, a journalist's dream come true, is the worthy apotheosis of this unique collection of chess interviews which were first published in New in Chess Magazine. Enter the world of chess champions past and present. Why does Kasparov think Bobby Fischer is an alien? How many stamps does Karpov have in his collection? Was it really Caruso who appeared in Smyslov's dream to teach him how to sing? Here's your chance to find out. Legends like Botvinnik, Gligoric, Portisch and Spassky appear together with aspiring youngsters like Anand, Kramnik and, among numerous others, chess queen Judit Polgar and Xie Jun. Different as they are, they all seem to ask Ten Geuzendam the favourite question of inimitable Miguel Najdorf. 'Do you want to hear a beautiful story?' New in Chess, published in Alkmaar, the Nederlands, is generally acclaimed as the world's finest chess magazine. Editor in Chief is Jan Timman. Dirk Jan ten Geuzendam is the magazine's leading reporter.
