The Art of Learning, 06/09/07

I just read The Art of Learning A Journey in the Pursuit of Excellence by Josh Waitzkin.

This is great book which pushed me and pulled me: it enthusiastically pushed me onto what's next pulled me back to Enhancing Trader Performance for a second read with a new perspective.

There is a beautiful circle here: watching myself learn chess from Grandmaster Davies, applying those nuances of learning to trading system designs, teaching my son chess and watching him thrive and work harder when the challenge met his skill level (Flow) , and finally completing and beginning the circle anew with Waitzkin's The Art of Learning.

How absolutely and endlessly fascinating.
