Rate this:
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? Endgame tells, for the very first time, the definitive story of Bobby Fischer - a figure as exotic and improbable as any American pop culture has yet produced.

Very stupid narration on this recording. The guy reads as though he's narrating a murder mystery. It's only a chess game, dude; CHIL;L!! Brady's is a pretty good book, but the way they produced the audiobook is really inept.
