This is a chess master's take on the business world. The author explains chess strategy and relates it to business. This link is a bit of a stretch but not unlike Blanchard's books. It reminds me of "Whale Done" in some respects. Not everything is a direct link to business or leadership. On the other hand, the author's encyclopedic knowledge of chess was fascinating.

I liked this book, mainly because of the chess anecdotes, but I think the book is too short and the strategies too general for them to be useful in business or life. I have yet to try these "strategies" at chess.

It's got a great title, but this slim volume contains little more than vague platitudes that will offer little benefit in either chess or life.
