An echo of adolescent enthusiasm underlies William Sarris's lively narration--a fitting tone for this history of the world's favorite and most enduring games. Checkers, backgammon, chess, Go, poker, Scrabble, bridge--even before you've finished the first chapter and heard all the possible opening moves in a checkers match, you realize that these are no passing adolescent diversions. Games for many are lifelong disciplines, and each challenges the highest capacities of the human brain. Sarris recounts what is aptly subtitled "a human history." But often here, the most formidable opponent is a computer. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
