This is a good book which served as the basis of a very good film. The story of chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin and his father is a natural for anyone interested in chess and is a must read for anyone involved with children's competitive sports. See the movie as well. Lloyd James does a good enough job, but the editing is a bit spotty, some sentences unfinished and others repeated. Not a serious distraction, though

The book is incomplete, and I tried downloading it in different formats with consistent results. The first five chapters are fine. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 are each truncated. I haven't checked the remaining chapters to see if the problem is present in the rest of the book; with that much material missing, there's really no point, since I have no more intention of listening to half a book than I would of trying to read a book which had several gaps of missing pages. This is completely unacceptable, and I'll certainly think twice before buying from Audible.com again.
