Summary:

''One of the most formidable brains of our era....fast-talking, exuberant, indigant one moment and laughing sardonically the next - Kasparov clearly relishes the fight.''-Washington Post Garry Kasparov was the highest-rated chess player in the world for over twenty years and is widely considered the greatest player that ever lived. InHow Life Imitates ChessKasparov distills the lessons he learned over a lifetime as a Grandmaster to offer a primer on s ...show moreuccessful decision-making: how to evaluate opportunities, anticipate the future, devise winning strategies. He relates in a lively, original way all the fundamentals, from the nuts and bolts of strategy, evaluation, and preparation to the subtler, more human arts of developing a personal style and using memory, intuition, imagination and even fantasy. Kasparov takes us through the great matches of his career, including legendary duels against both man (Grandmaster Anatoly Karpov) and machine (IBM chess supercomputer Deep Blue), enhancing the lessons of his many experiences with examples from politics, literature, sports and military history. With candor, wisdom, and humor, Kasparov recounts his victories and his blunders, both from his years as a world-class competitor as well as his new life as a political leader in Russia. An inspiring book that combines unique strategic insight with personal memoir,How Life Imitates Chessis a glimpse inside the mind of one of today's greatest and most innovative thinkers.
