„Kasparov is a gangster, he is a disgrace to chess, he is a disgrace to the human race. He is not something Russia should be proud of. He should join Khodorkovsky in prison. He has committed a terrible fraud with all these prearranged games and matches.“

— Bobby Fischer, Radio Interview, May 15 2005 http://www.geocities.jp/bobbby_b/mp3/F_34_3.MP3

Preface, 2nd edition (22 July 1848)
