I don't actually intend to read this book, just to share the following passage from Volume 4 of Kasparov's My Great Predecessors
. Bobby Fischer and Samuel Reshevsky at the 1970 Interzonal in Palma de Mallorca:
During the tournament they could sometimes be seen, leisurely walking along, peacefully chatting, little Sammy and tall Fischer. An idyllic picture: an orthodox Jew and an extremist who praised Mein Kampf. Later Reshevsky explained: 'He has his views, I have my views. It didn't bother me. I tried to make him see the light. I didn't succeed, but I tried.'
One of the most extraordinary things about Fischer was that almost all his colleagues in the chess world genuinely liked and respected him. He was a unique person.
