Book Quote of the Year

Although I have yet to get my grubby hands on the new book by Frank Brady, Endgame: Bobby Fischer's Remarkable Rise and Fall - from America's Brightest Prodigy to the Edge of Madness , I do have it on order from a local bookstore, and will, hopefully, have it in my hands in a couple of days.
I rarely read reviews before reading a book. I prefer to read the reviews after I've made my own judgement. I made an exception in this case and have read
every review I've found.  I even listened to an interview with the author on NPR while driving home yesterday. It can be found at: www.npr.org/2011/01/30/.../the-troubled-genius-of-bobby-fischer
 
The quote of the year is the last line of a review by Dick Cavett on Amazon: "Frank Brady’s Endgame is one of those books that makes you want your dinner guests to go the hell home so you can get back to it."
