Interview with Sasha Chapin about his memoir All the Wrong Moves: A Memoir About Chess, Love, and Ruining Everything. Insightful throughout, with perspectives beyond chess on relationships, social skills, travel, psychology, decision making, talent versus 10,000 hours, and, of course, chess.

I’ve since read the book, which is beautifully well written. It reminded me of William Finnegan’s Barbarian Days, also a beautifully written memoir of growing up and relationships, but anchored on surfing rather than chess.
