"Like all Quality Chess books, The Road to Reykjavik is a first-rate production in every sense of the word. Printed on high quality paper and neatly laid out, it features player, opening and name indexes. It also has excellent proof reading and fact checking, additional areas where Quality Chess shines compared to other publishers.

The Road to Reykjavik is must reading for all Fischer fans, especially now as the 50th anniversary of the 1972 World Championship is drawing near."
