A review by errantreads
Searching for Bobby Fischer: The World of Chess, Observed by the Father of a Child Prodigy, by Fred Waitzkin

informative inspiring reflective sad medium-paced


A fascinating look into the world of obsession and the lives of exceptional children and their parents. The prose was more than a bit stilted and cold as was the author himself (my impression), but the story of their lives is engaging and truly very unique.

(Note, the book is a very different animal from the movie. The movie is spectacular, by the way.)
