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.
