Log In or Join. I am going to list some of the game positions from the book Bobby Fischer teaches chess. Fischer's notes are rather clear and extremely helpful when looking at similar opening themes or even when trying to analyze one of his games. The writing. Yes, they'd all know, so would Stuart Margulies and Donn Mosenfelder who are the actual authors of Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess they're both education writers -- with bestselling books like:
I think it's pretty obvious that it's not.
I've worked in publishing -- it's hardly a criticism to say it wasn't written by Fischer -- most books written by "famous name who isn't primarily a writer" were not in fact written by "famous name who isn't primarily a writer" -- that's a fact.
Bobby Fischer teaches Chess looks and reads like a book written by someone else. It's really rather bizarre as a chess book. I'm talking about the whole thing.
Not the actual moves and vars of course As far as I know, one edition was written by fischer himself, and the other one either is completely re-written or edited to death, fischer accused the editors of the latter by "making him look like a patzer". A google search might bring more precise information. I have one book named shakki , in finnish by some russian whose name started with z Anyway, it was a good book as such, but the print was such a poor quality that you couldn't figure out anything from the diagrams.
It was hard telling which colour the pieces were and even which pieces they were.
Not hard. Damned near impossible. You say its pretty obvious he did notwhats so obvious about it. Were you an intimate friend of Fischer's? Do you really think you can tell what he sounds like. His mom would probably know.
His close friends would probably knowhis sister would know. But I have the distinct feelingYou wouldnt know.
Yes, they'd all know, so would Stuart Margulies and Donn Mosenfelder who are the actual authors of Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess they're both education writers -- with bestselling books like: Mastering Reading Comprehension Level You say it pretty obviousthe only thing obvious in your post isObviously, you dont know squat about Fischer!!!!
Good lord. You should put off chess study and work instead on acquiring basic civility. Anyway, I never claimed to know Fischer -- I claimed to know a bit about publishing and book creation. Here's what makes Fischer's book pretty obviously not his work: The title: Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess Who the hell puts their name in the title like that?
It's a marketting editor created title. The material. Fischer had never shown any interest in teaching or writing for beginners before this book, and never showed a damn bit of interest in beginners after the book. It's completely out of character for him. The structure of the book.
It's programmed learning. When did Bobby Fischer get into that?
He didn't It was all the rage in 60s educational publishing though. The writing. It doesn't read like a non-professional-writer Brooklyn chess genius wrote it. It reads like it was written by 60s education writers pretending to be Bobby Fischer. Which as it turns out, is exactly how it was written.
The timing. The last thing Fischer was doing in was sitting around writing an absolute beginner's chess book. Did he contribute to it? He allowed his name to be used, that's something. God knows what hand he had in it. Maybe he had a meeting with the authors at some point. I wouldn't be surprised if the first time he saw it was when he was sent a courtesy copy. I'm sure there are a few such books but I doubt if you can name any!!!
I think it's probably mostly by Igor Stohl and some Everyman editors, but I could be wrong. I very seriously doubt many chess books are ghost-written though.
There's no reason to; there's no money in chess books. Ghost-writers are for busy important people who could cash-in if they could just write a book but they have neither the time, talent, nor inclination. If you want examples I could tell you that t he rather famous memoirs of a legitimate Islamic World Leader were actually written by a nice 27 year old jewish boy from Brooklyn.
He was a friend of mine. But I'll bet you're far too clever to fall for such a phony story. His best works included " Aron Nimzowitsch: A Reappraisal ". Btw, I don't agree that Reinfeld is the worst author. He wrote some really good stuff like "The Immortal Games of Capablanca", "Winning Chess" with Chernev; such a classic that I have bought a used copy, even though it's DN and there are newer books on tactics and " Chess Sacrifices". Wow, that's absolutely shocking to me.
Upon what are you basing your criticism? I read that book cover to cover, probably 30 times over a ten year period in the 80's and I still go back to it now and then.
To me that book is truly one of the gems of that era of chess literature late 60's. Unusually for a modern chess book, it requires no knowledge of chess notation , using only diagrams with arrows and verbal descriptions of chess moves such as "rook-takes-pawn-check". The puzzles focus exclusively on finding checkmate , beginning with mate in one move and moving on to mate in two, three and four.
Combinations involving back rank mates are particularly emphasized. The book was originally published in by Basic Systems Inc,  a subsidiary of Xerox. In , Interplay Entertainment released a computer chess program of the same name based on the book. Andrew Soltis writes that Fischer "contributed some ideas, but chiefly his name".
Chiefly due to its accessibility for beginners and Fischer's high public profile, the book sold an estimated one million copies. It is difficult to determine chess book sales with certainty, but this figure, based on the royalty payments made to co-author Stuart Margulies, makes it a candidate for best-selling chess book of all time.
It remained in this position for four weeks. Frank Brady , who was hired by Basic Systems as a promotional consultant, later said the book "lacked color or even a fleeting glimpse into the real way Bobby's mental processes work.
The book remains in print and has achieved some degree of recognition in popular culture. Grandmaster Maurice Ashley has said that this was his first chess book, [ citation needed ] and it is referenced in Janet Fitch 's novel White Oleander.
