Bobby Fischer in his prime

If looking for a good read on just how much of an entitled ass Bobby Fischer was, consider Brad Darrach’s Bobby Fischer vs. the Rest of the World. It’s not a biography and only covers the 1972 World Chess Championship in Reykjavik, Iceland; that said, Darrach had extensive access to Fischer and Boris Spassky, as well as a number of the key organizers, lawyers, politicians, grand masters, bit-players and other assorted hangers-on.
