Does chess – a cerebral, individualistic pursuit if ever there was one – really help solve real problems? Yes, says Kasparov: "I talk about strategy, tactics, achieving your potential, decoding the complexity of life, so it's mainly about the big picture. I feel I have enough experience to pull these things together."
From Garry Kasparov: The master who won't be Putin's pawn.
Why can't this guy just get off his political butt for a while and come to Dresden? He'll be more relaxed, I think.
