How bout the rest of you all? :D
Oh here is where I saw that book
I started reading it when I saw it mentioned here, thought "why not", for fast learning and learning new stuff are my only positive qualities that I know of.
Anyway, I didn't read through because it brought out my Go autism (I don't play chess). It is written by a professional chess player, so that's why.
Anyway, the book is kind of well written, as in the text is clear and he transmits a definite idea in each paragraph and not just fodder.
But he spends too much time talking about his own experience: how he started playing chess, what he had to go through, how he found out about tai chi, etc.
He does it to convey some ideas about learning and such. But on the long run he does spend too much time talking about himself.
I read about half of it before I realized it was just triggering my autism and I wasn't really learning anything new
