Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess
Compiled by RonB52734
--*--

By Bobby Fischer, Stuart Margulies, Ph.D. and Donn Mosenfelder (Bantam Books, 1972). This is an interesting little book for beginners. It is mostly comprised of checkmate puzzles. Eighteen of the puzzles in the book are taken from (or based on) positions in certain of Fischer's games. Those games are listed here.
