At age thirty-three, Maurice Ashley became the first African American to attain the rank of International Grand Master of Chess. Since that historic moment, he has brought his love of the game to a wide audience as an educator, innovator, and motivational speaker.

In Move by Move, Ashley guides listeners through the essential lessons that chess has taught him about life, using both personal examples from his rise from an immigrant kid playing matches in Brooklyn parks to the most rarified levels of competition, as well as insights and anecdotes from fellow notable chess players. 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 graduates, chess enthusiasts, and 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.

Perfect for: readers of self-help, personal growth, and popular business books; anyone seeking guidance on applying strategic thinking to their daily lives; chess players and fans of the game; people who loved The Queen's Gambit and want to learn more about chess; and a gift for grads and anyone else who may enjoy or benefit from inspirational books.
