Chances are you’ve heard of Josh Waitzkin. The early part of his life is profiled in the book and later the film ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer‘. I became reacquainted with Josh during a run yesterday. I’m a voracious podcast listener on my long runs and one of my favorites is The Tim Ferris Show. In episode 2 of his podcast, Tim talks with Josh for almost 90 minutes. You can find that episode here: LINK.
That interview piqued my curiosity, so I did a bit more searching and also came across an Authors@Google segment from a few years back.
Josh’s book ‘The Art of Learning: A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence’ is now on my shortlist of books to read next. Grab it for Kindle here: LINK.
