This book, "The Art of Learning: An Inner Journey to Optimal Performance", is not the ultimate guide to learn how to learn, but a journey. Josh’s journey mastering chess and later in his life mastering Tai Chi (a Chinese martial art). Based on his experience he offers valuable advice on how to master a skill!
Joshua Waitzkin won the U.S. Junior Chess championship two times, and won several other chess competitions during his career.
As an adult, he learned Tai Chi and won several US National medals and also won a champion title (Taiji Push Hands in 2004).
I didn’t know exactly what to expect from this book, but I can say it was a nice surprise.
Even though the book focus mostly on the author's career and life, he teaches valuable lessons on how to master a skill.
