"Secrets of the Expert Mind" in Scientific American (August 2006)

The Expert Mind

The August 2006 issue of Scientific American features an article titled "Secrets of the Expert Mind" by Philip E. Ross that uses studies of how chess masters think to reflect on the meaning of expertise generally. I have not been able to get a copy myself (my local stores are still trying to sell the July issue it seems), but a few bloggers have read it, including Steve (Steve Learns Chess) , Swamp Fox, ShandyKing and John Daly.
