Gary Kasparov on Bobby Fischer

The National Public Radio has a couple of special reports on Bobby Fischer. In this one, Gary Kasparov describes Fischer's chess as "very refreshing" and attributes to the American legend a new style of chess.

And in Fischer Inspired Chess Boom in Pop Culture, the NPR talks about the so-called "Fischer Boom" which raged not only in the US but across the world.
