THE ART OF LEARNING: A JOURNEY IN THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE is the story of a world-class chess winner who dominated the chess world for ten years--and became fascinated with the learning process involved in both chess and martial arts. In analyzing the principles of learning which led to his success in two very different arenas, THE ART OF LEARNING offers up insights into the mental and physical skills involved in achieving success no matter what the subject. An excellent blend of autobiography and learning insights will appeal not just to education libraries, but to general-interest collections as well.
