Recensione

'A testimonial to the timeless principle of 'do less and accomplish more'. Highly recommended for those who want to understand the power of consciousness.' - Deepak Chopra
'This is a really superb book, one I wish someone had given to me a long time ago. The title is accurate - at a profound level, it's about real learning from hard conflict rather than from disinterested textbooks. It will take a ferocious interruption to make you set this book down.' - Robert Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Sinossi

In his riveting new book, The Art of Learning, Waitzkin tells his remarkable story of personal achievement and shares the principles of learning and performance that have propelled him to the top—twice.

Josh Waitzkin knows what it means to be at the top of his game. A public figure since winning his first National Chess Championship at the age of nine, Waitzkin was catapulted into a media whirlwind as a teenager when his father’s book Searching for Bobby Fischer was made into a major motion picture. After dominating the scholastic chess world for ten years, Waitzkin expanded his horizons, taking on the martial art Tai Chi Chuan and ultimately earning the title of World Champion. How was he able to reach the pinnacle of two disciplines that on the surface seem so different? “I’ve come to realize that what I am best at is not Tai Chi, and it is not chess,” he says. “What I am best at is the art of learning.”

With a narrative that combines heart-stopping martial arts wars and tense chess face-offs with life lessons that speak to all of us, The Art of Learning takes readers through Waitzkin’s unique journey to excellence. He explains in clear detail how a well-thought-out, principled approach to learning is what separates success from failure. Waitzkin believes that achievement, even at the championship level, is a function of a lifestyle that fuels a creative, resilient growth process. Rather than focusing on climactic wins, Waitzkin reveals the inner workings of his everyday method, from systematically triggering intuitive breakthroughs, to honing techniques into states of remarkable potency, to mastering the art of performance psychology.

Through his own example, Waitzkin explains how to embrace defeat and make mistakes work for you. Does your opponent make you angry? Waitzkin describes how to channel emotions into creative fuel. As he explains it, obstacles are not obstacles but challenges to overcome, to spur the growth process by turning weaknesses into strengths. He illustrates the exact routines that he has used in all of his competitions, whether mental or physical, so that you too can achieve your peak performance zone in any competitive or professional circumstance.

In stories ranging from his early years taking on chess hustlers as a seven year old in New York City’s Washington Square Park, to dealing with the pressures of having a film made about his life, to International Chess Championships in India, Hungary, and Brazil, to gripping battles against powerhouse fighters in Taiwan in the Push Hands World Championships, The Art of Learning encapsulates an extraordinary competitor’s life lessons in a page-turning narrative.

Di Davide RECENSORE TOP 500 il 17 marzo 2016
Formato: Formato Kindle
Da tempo avevo messo nella mia lista dei libri da leggere questo testo ma avevo rimandato di volta in volta dando la priorità ad altre letture. Qualche settimana fa ho iniziato a sfogliarlo e mi ha subito colpito. Come andavo avanti con le pagine mi rendevo conto che il libro mi aveva conquistato rispondendo a delle domande che mi ponevo da qualche tempo, o almeno fornendomi un altro punto di vista. Bellissima la parte sui due approcci all'apprendimento. Ho discusso dei principi che sono menzionati con altre persone e con uno psichiatra molto esperto e Josh sembra avere proprio centrato il segno, riuscendo a farmi vedere un lato del mio carattere che mi blocca nella mia crescita.
Consiglio questo libro a chiunque e suggerisco di andare nel sito ufficiale per scaricare le guide di lettura gratuite create per migliorare l'esperienza di apprendimento. Allego la foto del retro del libro

4.0 su 5 stelle this is an excellent memoir/philosophical book about the author's journey from a chess ... 18 dicembre 2016
Di katarinaism - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Though not quite what I was expecting (more of an advice book on approaching the learning process and pursuing self-growth), this is an excellent memoir/philosophical book about the author's journey from a chess champion to tai chi martial arts champion, and the parallels he draws between his training of the two. Those who are fans of books such as Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers" will appreciate this book written by an undeniable outlier not only in one field, but in two seemingly unrelated ones. However, Waitzkin points out the similarities between his preparation for competing in tai chi as well as chess, and outlines the pitfalls he faced early in his career (allowing himself to be affected by mind games, becoming easily flustered, having difficulty maintaining focus) and how he remedied them. It was interesting to read about his journey unfold as he matured into an adult and began pursuing martial arts, and how the calm, focused demeanor he developed helped him realize how to learn and grow more efficiently. It is inspiring to read, but those looking for an advice book will find the advice buried deeply in metaphor.

2.0 su 5 stelle Dissapointing read 21 luglio 2014

I picked up this book after hearing about it from a friend and had high hopes for a great read. There are some interesting stories but I found nothing to take away that could help me in me own pursuit of excellence. If you're interested in learning more about the life of Josh Waitzkin then you will probably enjoy the book. If you're looking for advice to help you pursue excellence in your own life, you may want to look elsewhere.

2.0 su 5 stelle Should have been titled "My Take on the Art of Learning" 30 luglio 2014
Di RPG - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is really a personal account on how the author has learned his "art" and overcame his physical and mental limitations. This first part of the book, having to do with his chess years are the more interesting, in my opinion. The second half of the book, having to do with his Tai Chi years seems too long and frankly, a bit boring.

Choprah's self serving sales pitch in the back cover, "do less and accomplish more" makes no sense. Waitzkin, did the exact opposite, he plunged thousands of hours into what he loved body and soul.

4.0 su 5 stelle More like "Josh Waitzkin: My Life," but that's not a bad thing 16 febbraio 2015
Di Alex Bush - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Josh Waitzkin is an interesting man. Like, really interesting. From chess phenom to world class martial artist, Waitzkin has done things with his mind and body most people could only dream of. That being said, this book won't teach you how learn better in your own life. While there are a couple helpful hints describing Waitzkin's process, the vast majority of the book focuses on Waitzkin's life and battles, both on the board and in the ring.

Waitzkin strikes me as a likable, down-to-earth guy and is an engaging writer, giving you a privileged glance into the inner workings of his mind. Would recommend, if only for some on-paper camaraderie with a real life "prodigy" (though he hates that word).

2.0 su 5 stelle Had high expectations that were not fulfilled 1 maggio 2014
Di Conejo23 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I got this book with great anticipation, a lot of people I respect absolutely adored this book. That was not my experience. I had two main issues here, one is more about me than the book, the other about the book itself. To the latter, it seemed like 80% of the book wasn't about learning, but listening to Josh tell stories that went on and on and on and on about "Push Hands" and Tai Chi competition. I get telling stories to illustrate learning concepts, but this went well beyond that to simply relaying those stories. Many may find those exciting and interesting. I found them boring. They also smacked of the author reveling in his awesomeness.

The former issue was this...you know how sometimes you read an author teaching on a subject and it just clicks with you and your learning style? That's not me and this book. I'm not sure I can describe it, but something about the way Josh teaches and transmits information is not the way I receive and process it. Did I learn some things from this book? Sure. But I'm not sure it was really anything I hadn't already learned, it was just the same concepts phrased differently. Josh likes to create cutesy phrases to describe old concepts. Numbers to leave numbers, making smaller circles, etc... None of it for me was new and I kept waiting for the revelations, and instead I kept getting more of an education on Push Hands. I learned more about how the Taiwanese Federation cheats at structuring competitions than I did about 'the art of learning'.

Just my experience, hope yours is different.
