Good books on bobby fischer?
I recently bought frank brady's book "profile of a prodigy" i think this is regarded as the best book on fischer im currently up to page 200 and it is certainly very good except i find the games very hard to go to with their old style e.g. P-QN3. I was wandering what other good books people have read on fischer. Also regarding fischers book "my 60 most memorable games" i've heard this book has been changed a lot over time without fischers permision and many of the books "my 60 most memorable games" do not have only fischers anotations and that additional and some incorrect annotations have been added can anyone clarify on this?

I read (on these forums) that crackpot GM's and Masters had been publishing under Fischer's name deliberately incorrect analysis. (Leaving pieces hanging missing obvious combinations/mates)

I too have read Brady's book on Bobby Fischer and have not found as of yet another book on the subject as good as his... Though my search is not over yet, it will be hard to top "Bobby Fischer profile of a prodigy"...
