Garry Kasparov; Read by Adam Grupper

Macmillan Audio

How Life Imitates Chess is a primer on how to think, make decisions, prepare strategies and anticipate the future. Kasparov has distilled the lessons he learned over a lifetime as a Chess grandmaster to cover the practical side--tactics, strategy, preparation--as well as the subtler, more human arts of using memory, intuition, and imagination. It's a remarkably honest audiobook in which Kasparov--one of the world's most celebrated and successful competitors--details both his blunders and his victories, always with the intent to enable readers to absorb his lessons and do better for themselves.
