The game has been his salvation - delivering him from a troubled youth, but a paralyzing fear of losing leads him to distance himself from competitive chess. As an adult, he is blessed with a talented chess-playing daughter and forms his own community chess program for adolescents, giving him the opportunity to share the game and to complete the journey that he began decades earlier.Throughout his life, chess has been the common thread that linked the author to his family and friends. The game has at times been his best friend and his worst enemy. It has been a companion through periods of tragedy and unsurpassed joy. Above all though, chess has been a teacher - one capable of motivating him to success and changing the lives of others. Chess has endowed the author with character, along with the knowledge that character is most needed in times of great victory and ignominious defeat.Taal: Engels; Afmetingen: 11x216x140 mm; Gewicht: 240,00 gram; Verschijningsdatum: september 2010; ISBN10: 1453790799; ISBN13: 9781453790793; , Engelstalig | Paperback | 2010, Literatuur & Romans, Literaire non-fictie, Createspace
