    Description

    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.
    ©2007, 2008 Garry Kasparov (P)2007 Audio Renaissance, a division of Holtzbrinck Publishers LLC

    Commentaires

    "A business manual by the champion-turned-activist [is] a no-brainer. The book is serious, readable, and offer[s] real insight...engaging...Kasparov fans will find much to enjoy." ( Publishers Weekly)
    "It's clear from this enjoyable offering that the champion's gifts are not confined to the chessboard and those same qualities are now to be employed at making the planet a more livable place." ( Chess Life)

    Interesting insights

    Qu'avez-vous particulièrement aimé dans le livre audio How Life Imitates Chess ?

    The moment he described the World Chess Champioship against Anand in 1995 with the Ruy Lopez surprise he worked on all night with, amonst others, Kramnik who later pulled some Ruy Lopez tricks on him when they were opposed (2003, I think) !

    Quel était le moment le plus mémorable de How Life Imitates Chess ?

    When Kasparov describes how difficult it was to play against Anand and how much work it takes to prepare a match.

    Avez-vous pu écouter l'une des performances de Garry Kasparov et Adam Grupper auparavant ? Quelle comparaison pouvez-vous faire ?

    Yes. They're good if you're a chess fan.

    Avez-vous pu avoir une réaction excessive concernant ce livre ? Est-ce qu'il vous a fait rire ou pleurer ?

    I liked the book but not that much.

    Avez-vous d'autres commentaires ?

    I had read this book when it was first published. But hearing it provides a different approach and other insights.

    Pretty Good...

    but there isn't anything terribly new here for this genre of "self-help" book. This book is more interesting when Kasparov is using specific chess games or matches to make points (which he does most often and enough to merit "four stars" in this genre) and least so when he falls into the typical jargon which merely makes obvious points: "one must always know the potential payoff of any significant risk..." etc. etc. If you are a chess fan and aren't entirely jaded by the self-help genre, this is worth the time...

    Wisdom from Real Life Under Pressure

    Would you consider the audio edition of How Life Imitates Chess to be better than the print version?

    Yes.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of How Life Imitates Chess?

    Every chapter is a heart felt introspective and authentic glimpse into Kasparov's world of chess. His encouragement to challenge ourselves, focus on growth, never backing away from the unknown, taking responsibility for ourselves, for change, is inspiring. I have tremendous respect for Kasparov. Not only did I learn of a new realm to the game of chess, I learned tactical maneuvers to the game of life.

    What about Garry Kasparov and Adam Grupper ’s performance did you like?

    Listening to this audio book felt like sitting with a mentor who has lived through the challenges he was advising me to confront. The credentials of this man are humbling. I am in awe of Kasparov.

    Adam Grupper's narrative voice was perfectly matched to Kasparov's no nonsense approach to growth. His tone, pacing, and inflection felt authentic. The quality of the recording was superb. No back ground noise. I look forward to listening to this audio book again and again. There are so many gems of wisdom. A true gem of Audio books!

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Real Fear is in your Mind. Face it, own it, and Grow from it!

    where is kasparov's voice?

    the book is good, but I was expecting to hear Kasparov's voice, as promissed by the display. I will ask for another book, since this fact is kind of disapointing

    Much better than I expected

    This book was much better than I expected. I must read if you are a fan of Gary Kasparov. it had more to do with chess psychology and strategy than I expected which was good for me. I loved the chess world anecdotes and application for daily life.

    En general es muy bueno

    Lo único extraño es la sensación de que Kasparov hoy es político y creerle a uno es difícil.

    Inspired by Garry Kasparov

    Garry's Kasparov is enlightening. It provides some great insights on strategy matters as well as the perception of the reality and how I could take advantage of experiences I have to create a better future for myself. It is worth listening more than once definitely. The narration is crystal clear. Therefore, it is easy to "swallow" !!!

    Excellent book

    Kasparov writes as well in book form as he does in his columns. Direct and to the point. The book is also read very well by Grupper

    Great for chess enthusiasts

    I enjoyed a lot the stories related to chess. Even when content is kind of simple, this is well structured and easy to listen.
