ABOUT MAURICE ASHLEY AND MOVE BY MOVE

At age thirty-three, Maurice Ashley became the first Black chess Grandmaster. From his time as an immigrant kid playing matches in Brooklyn parks to the highest levels of competition, he has brought his love of the game to a wide audience as an educator, innovator, and motivational speaker.

Using both personal examples and anecdotes from other notable chess players, MOVE BY MOVE guides readers through the essential lessons that chess has taught Ashley about life including:

- Seeing from the other person's viewpoint
- Balancing sacrifices and risks
- Embracing chaos
- Learning from imperfections

In short chapters with practical takeaways, this book reaches from the fundamental to the counterintuitive on subjects ranging from self-knowledge to strategic thinking to the importance of failure. This little book of wisdom is the perfect gift for anyone interested in understanding how lessons from the most famous and long-lasting game of strategy can help you reach your personal and professional goals.

ABOUT MAURICE ASHLEY

Maurice Ashley is a Chess Grandmaster, an ESPN commentator, a three-time national championship coach, and an author. In 1999 he earned the title of Chess Grandmaster, making him the first Black Grandmaster in the game's history, and in 2016 he was inducted into the US Chess Hall of Fame. He lives in Florida.

ABOUT MOVE BY MOVE 

This is a collection of the most compelling life lessons chess has taught me over the past forty years. You'll learn how to build a winner's mentality, how to analyze backwards to solve problems, why learning through loss is a key path to greatness, how to balance sacrifices and risk, and more. And maybe, most importantly, you'll learn that to get to the top of the mountain, you must first conquer yourself. I hope these lessons change your life the way they have changed mine.
