The Art Of Learning: An Inner Journey To Optimal Performance - Josh Waitzkin
2008 Free Press The Art Of Learning: An Inner Journey To Optimal Performance-Josh Waitzkin

The name of the author of this book, Josh Waitzkin, could ring a bell. He was the chess prodigy his father wrote the book Searching for Bobby Fischer about. Another search is the main topic of this book: the quest to reach one's full potential. In his youth, Josh Waitzkin was acknowledged as one of the greatest chess talents. But the game who was a friend later became alien and disquieting. Waitzkin became an IM, but pointed his attention more and more towards mastering martial arts.

Music And Chess: Apollo Meets Caissa - Achilleas Zographos
2017 Russell Enterprises, Inc. Music And Chess: Apollo Meets Caissa-Achilleas Zographos

Chess and music are for some people two things that make life more beautiful. But why relate the two and write a book on this subject? Why compare seemingly irrelevant items? In the introduction, the author writes there's nothing to prove, rather it answers to man's desire to better comprehend the word surrounding him. It's more of a wander, so to say. Certainly a book for a broad audience. For those who have an interest in chess, music, or one of the two.
