"The Immortal Game" by David Shenk
There is a nice National Public Radio interview with David Shenk, author of the recently released The Immortal Game: A History of Chess, or How 32 Carved Pieces on a Board Illuminated Our Understanding of War, Art, Science and the Human Brain (available through Amazon at $17.16). This may be the most well-promoted chess history book in living memory, and I wish it great success, though I have not yet received my own review copy.... But I guess my blog doesn't generate the same readership as ABC News or The Chicago Sun Times. Bill Wall got his and has a very positive review. I'll tell you more once I read it.
