Chess Book Recommendations from a Chess Expert

Discipline is essential in chess and in life. In chess you might see a piece you can take that may seem free for the moment but the change in position could have some consequences for you. Chess improves your critical thinking skills. I think everyone, at any age, should learn how to play chess. Since high school I've been a competitive chess player; playing in tournaments up and down the east coast. I'm also a United States Chess Federation certified chess coach and I've taught many people of various ages the game.

Challenge Accepted: Read Harder 2017

Challenge #13: Read a nonfiction book about technology

A new year means new year resolutions and challenges. One reading challenge that I love to do is Book Riot’s 2017 Read Harder challenge. Instead of having people focus on a specific number of books, Read Harder challenges people to read different genres or authors that they may overlook. This year, there are 24 prompts for readers, and a complete list may be found here on the Book Riot Goodreads page.
