Chess for Fun, Chess for Blood
I bought the book "Chess for Fun, Chess for Blood"
It had the charm of being really cheap.
Reading through it I have to say that Lasker's points about people who play Chess for fun strike close to home. He, Lasker, relates the games he played with a famous virtuoso violinist (unnamed). The fun the violinist had was in exercising his own mind to figure out things that he could have spent time learning from a book or a teacher.
The fun for the 'patzer' was in the discovery.
Plus, the guy was a world-class violinist, so - I mean - hell, the guy had talent.
Such is my case.
I'm in the noodling-around-on-the-piano phase of learning Chess. And I'm having fun.
