How Life Imitates Chess Audiobook

How Life Imitates Chess

Author: Garry Kasparov Narrator: Garry Kasparov Release Date: November 2021

Brought to you by Penguin. THE STRATEGIES BEHIND A SUCCESSFUL LIFE FROM THE LEGENDARY GRANDMASTER AND ADVISOR TO NETFLIX'S THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT, NOW WITH A NEW FOREWORD 'In this book, chess is a teacher, and I aim to show it is a great one.' For over twenty years, Garry Kasparov dominated the world of chess. As the youngest ever undisputed World Champion, known for confounding his opponents at every move and breaking record after record, Kasparov was asked the same question time and time again: what makes a champion? Drawing on a wealth of revealing and instructive stories, from the most intense moments of his greatest games to the world-changing decisions of history's greatest strategists such as Winston Churchill and Steve Jobs, Kasparov reveals the strategic ways of thinking that always give a player - in the game of life as well as chess - the edge. PRAISE FOR GARRY KASPAROV 'I've never seen someone with such a feel for dynamics in complex positions' - Magnus Carlsen, World Chess Champion 'There is nothing in chess he has been unable to deal with' - Vladimir Kramnik, Chess Grandmaster 'Mr. Kasparov is not only one of the world's smartest men, he is also among its bravest.' - Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch © Garry Kasparov 2007 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

Cómo la vida imita al ajedrez Audiobook

Cómo la vida imita al ajedrez

Author: Garry Kasparov Narrator: Carlos Zertuche Release Date: January 2021

El mejor ajedrecista de la historia nos enseña a ver la vida como un juego de estrategia. Garry Kasparov, el gran maestro del tablero, explica cómo las soluciones a los problemas cotidianos requieren de las mismas artes y técnicas que el ajedrez: conocimiento, preparación, estrategia y cálculo de las variantes. En el ajedrez, como en la realidad, es necesario analizar, descartar, organizar el pensamiento, comprender las acciones que pueden ocurrir, tener soluciones preparadas, saber concluir y estudiar todas las variantes posibles, ser capaz de hacer de la necesidad una virtud y entender las facultades del adversario para darles la vuelta en beneficio propio. Para ello es imprescindible contar con una férrea disciplina, intuición y lógica que nos faciliten el acercamiento a los problemas comunes. Igual que en la vida diaria, el conocimiento de la situación nos ayuda a vivir y a afrontar los retos con perspectivas de éxito. Escrito desde el sentido común y la profunda inteligencia estratégica desarrollada durante la larga y brillante carrera del autor, este libro muestra la manera de avanzar paso a paso hacia el objetivo final; también cómo convertir una derrota en una futura victoria, cómo dar la vuelta a una situación comprometida y cómo prepararse para los grandes desafíos, siempre partiendo de situaciones reales de la dilatada experiencia de Kasparov y extrayendo las lecciones más pertinentes.

Fight for Liberty: Defending Democracy in the Age of Trump Audiobook

Fight for Liberty: Defending Democracy in the Age of Trump

Anne Applebaum, Garry Kasparov, Richard North Patterson, and a constellation of other thinkers make the urgent case for liberal democracy reinvigorating its central values in an age of doubt and discord. Liberal democracy is in crisis around the world, besieged by authoritarianism, nationalism, and other illiberal forces. Far-right parties are gaining traction in Europe, Vladimir Putin tightens his grip on Russia and undermines democracy abroad, and America struggles with poisonous threats from the right and left. But the defenders of democracy are strong too. Taking their cues from the 1788 Federalist Papers, the Renew Democracy Initiative is a collective of pro-democracy advocates from across the political spectrum, including Anne Applebaum, Garry Kasparov, Max Boot, Bret Stephens, Ted Koppel, and Natan Sharansky. This book is their foundational document, a collection of essays that analyze the multi-pronged threats to liberal democracy in the U.S. and abroad, and offer solutions based on fundamental democratic principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law. Fight for Liberty is a roadmap for the struggle against the rising tide of extremism and a cri de coeur in defense of the liberal world order, which sees itself threatened as never before today.

Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins Audiobook

Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins

Author: Garry Kasparov, Mig Greengard Narrator: Bob Brown Release Date: May 2017

"A highly human exploration of artificial intelligence, its exciting possibilities and inherent limits." --Max Levchin, cofounder of PayPal, CEO of Affirm, and Silicon Valley angel investor Garry Kasparov's 1997 chess match against the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue was a watershed moment in the history of technology. It was the dawn of a new era in artificial intelligence: a machine capable of beating the reigning human champion at this most cerebral game. That moment was more than a century in the making, and in this breakthrough book, Kasparov reveals his astonishing side of the story for the first time. He describes how it felt to strategize against an implacable, untiring opponent with the whole world watching, and recounts the history of machine intelligence through the microcosm of chess, considered by generations of scientific pioneers to be a key to unlocking the secrets of human and machine cognition. Kasparov uses his unrivaled experience to look into the future of intelligent machines and sees it bright with possibility. As many critics decry artificial intelligence as a menace, particularly to human jobs, Kasparov shows how humanity can rise to new heights with the help of our most extraordinary creations, rather than fear them. Deep Thinking is a tightly argued case for technological progress, from the man who stood at its precipice with his own career at stake.

How Life Imitates Chess Audiobook

How Life Imitates Chess

Author: Garry Kasparov Narrator: Adam Grupper Release Date: October 2007

How Life Imitates Chess is a primer on how to think, make decisions, prepare strategies and anticipate the future. Kasparov has distilled the lessons he learned over a lifetime as a Chess grandmaster to cover the practical side-tactics, strategy, preparation-as well as the subtler, more human arts of using memory, intuition, and imagination. It's a remarkably honest audiobook in which Kasparov-one of the world's most celebrated and successful competitors-details both his blunders and his victories, always with the intent to enable readers to absorb his lessons and do better for themselves.
