Check out Paul Hoffman’s blog. Paul, my friend and former boss at Discover Magazine (when it was owned by Disney) is a master at deducing complex scientific material and cerebral challenges into terms I can understand. He did this as the editor in chief at Discover, then as the President of Encyclopedia Britannica and more recently as the author of The King’s Gambit: A Son, a Father, and the World’s Most Dangerous Game.
My book club discussed this book recently and we spent a good ten minutes dissecting the meaning of the cover alone. Hard to imagine a book with chess on the cover could be a page-turner, but it is. And I’m not just saying that because Paul just blogged about me here!
