About the Author:

Bruce Pandolfini is one of the world's most sought-after chess teachers and one of the most widely read chess writers working today. His role as analyst for PBS's coverage of the 1972 match between chess superstars Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky first launched him into the public eye. His coaching of chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin was portrayed in the book and film Searching for Bobby Fischer. He is a regular columnist for Chess Life, the bible of the chess world, and continues to coach young players professionally and to consult with CEOs from numerous Fortune 500 companies. He lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

Renowned chess teacher and Fortune 500 business consultant Pandolfini delves into the relation between chess and business at great length. Businesspeople love to checkmate the competition and delight in the day-to-day chess-like analysis and warfare that business demands. The author generously doles out chess anecdotes, albeit fascinating ones, yet shortchanges the listener a bit when it comes to actual business instruction; the stories are interesting, but we come away from his New Jersey-inflected lecture with more chess lore and less usable business advice than we would expect. Chess hounds will trade a queen or play at a handicap to gather the "lore of the board" contained herein, but businesspeople may want to play a few rounds before listening.
