Looking for specific book about Fischer Spassky match

Sort:
ChessLearnerPermit

Around 1995 or 1996 I received this book about the Fischer Spasky World Championship match. I was a Junior in High School and remember being enthralled by it. it wasn't a collection of games, it was written almost fiction style. The games were in the back of the book. I can't remember the name and I can't seem to find it anywhere. Do your thing internet and help me out! Please!

This one?

I know that's not it, thank you though.

I'm going to go back and look through covers or re-prints etc. It was a photo cover and black and white of people in suits, and I'm sure I'm remembering wrong. I'll dig deeper into the list provided with the wiki.

Thanks so much everyone.

The best book on the match was by Gligoric, but it doesn't sound like the one you describe.

I THINK I found it. It's an earlier version of this book here, which was re-released with all the games and analysis.
