In his riveting new book, The Art of Learning, Waitzkin tells his remarkable story of personal achievement and shares the principles of learning and performance that have propelled him to the top--twice. Josh Waitzkin knows what it means to be at the top of his game. A public figure since winning his first National Chess Championship at the age of nine, Waitzkin was catapulted into a media whirlwind as a teenager when his father's book Searching for Bobby Fischer was made into a major motion picture. After dominating the scholastic chess world for ten years, Waitzkin expanded his horizons, taking on the martial art Tai Chi Chuan and ultimately earning the title of World Champion. How was he able to reach the pinnacle of two disciplines that on the surface seem so different? "I've come to realize that what I am best at is not Tai Chi, and it is not chess," he says. "What I am best at is the art of learning." With a narrative that combines heart-stopping martial arts wars and tense chess face-offs with life lessons that speak to all of us, The Art of Learning takes readers through Waitzkin's unique journey to excellence. He explains in clear detail how a well-thought-out, principled approach to learning is what separates success from failure. Waitzkin believes that achievement, even at the championship level, is a function of a lifestyle that fuels a creative, resilient growth process. Rather than focusing on climactic wins, Waitzkin reveals the inner workings of his everyday method, from systematically triggering intuitive breakthroughs, to honing techniques into states of remarkable potency, to mastering the art of performance psychology. Through his own example, Waitzkin explains how to embrace defeat and make mistakes work for you. Does your opponent make you angry? Waitzkin describes how to channel emotions into creative fuel. As he explains it, obstacles are not obstacles but challenges to overcome, to spur the growth process by turning weaknesses into strengths. He illustrates the exact routines that he has used in all of his competitions, whether mental or physical, so that you too can achieve your peak performance zone in any competitive or professional circumstance. In stories ranging from his early years taking on chess hustlers as a seven year old in New York City's Washington Square Park, to dealing with the pressures of having a film made about his life, to International Chess Championships in India, Hungary, and Brazil, to gripping battles against powerhouse fighters in Taiwan in the Push Hands World Championships, The Art of Learning encapsulates an extraordinary competitor's life lessons in a page-turning narrative.… (mehr)

Not a bad read, but you can only romanticize chess so much.

Disclaimer: I couldn't finish it. Way more about chess and personal life than the art of learning. At least for what I read. ( )

Excellently written. His description of intense chess and martial arts strategy was written in a way that made it impossible to out down. His description of these intense moments were beautifully used to explain his methods of learning and how obtains knowledge and skills, which is how he has been able to accomplish so many things. Not everyone will use these skills to become world champion, but seeing how he learns can certainly be used by anyone and applied, at least in some degree, to many aspects of their life. This inspires me to apply these principles in many areas ( )

Josh Waitzkin has produced a very inspiring read that spans from his life as a child-age chess master to an accomplished martial artist. Unlike books covering identical themes, Josh is not going to show you scans of the brain or interview random successful people and ask them “how they did it?” (while obviously each of them will come up with a different answer).
Josh invites you to a 20+ journey of building up skills in highly competitive fields with all the the ups and downs that naturally come with it. It’s an intimate and very personal book whereby the author shares reflections, observations and humbly tries to summarize key ideas that may apply to all of us without sounding authoritative. ( )

Interesting book and very well written. I enjoyed much of his techniques on approaching learning. Curiously, I found many of the names for his learning techniques to be very non-intuitive and took away from his discussion.

Still, at least one-third of the story is biographical story with which he tells of his life. This was more than I expected. I was also hoping for more reference to learning and chess and less about how much the movie affected his life and his techniques into martial arts.

Not for everyone, the book is still an enjoyable look into one frame of what it takes to be "the best" in something. ( )

A contemplative competitor from chess to martial arts. Lots of great subtle points about learning through various trying situations that are hard to enunciate, but he does so eloquently! Great read ( )
