Chess obsession

Paul Broekhuyse, chess editor of The Australian, favourably reviews a memoir-centred look at the legions of chess wannabes, struggling in near poverty to improve and break into the proper professional ranks. It sounds like the scene for pianists, singers, guitarists, dancers, authors, artists, actors, etc., etc. As a fellow obsessive, this is a book for me. (And chess is grist for the mill for the techniques/practices of Anders Ericsson’s idea of “Peak.”) (Image from the book review)
