Podcast 20: IM John Donaldson about "Bobby Fischer and His World"

Ben Graff and I talk to International Master John Donaldson from the USA. John is not just a chess master, but also a historian and has just published "Bobby Fischer and His World: The Man, the Player, the Riddle, and the Colorful Characters Who Surrounded Him" We covered a wide range of topics including - What was it that made him decide to write Bobby Fischer and his world?  What were some of the most unusual things John learned in researching this book? How did Bobby make such an incredible leap in strength between the summer of 1955 and 1958? John is one of those guests who is just so easy to interview - he has so many wonderful anecdotes and meticulously researched and surprising facts at his fingertips we just needed to press RECORD and occasionally ask a few questions.
