Garry Kasparov, the world chess champion extraordinaire, applies lessons gleaned from the game of chess to the game of life. Preparation, practice, evaluation, strategy, tactics, intuition, creativity, commitment, and spontaneity are all topics that get plenty of anecdotal treatment from his experiences sitting at the chess board in the heat of battle. However, the retelling of the chess legacy's key matches and minute decisions at critical junctures sometimes overwhelms the lessons themselves. That said, the material still contains nuggets of wisdom and insight that make it worth investing the time to listen. L.V.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
