"This book is wonderful! The juxtaposition of chess and psychology is fascinating, insightful and inspiring. I found myself taking notes while reading to remember key points... I look forward to reading this book again.. That is the mark of a good book to me, one that I would read again. You do not need to even know how to play chess to read this."
