Resumen del libro

No Time for Chess? Is that What's Troubling You, Bunky? Well, have a seat ... How does one cope with devoting sufficient time to family and career while occasionally trying to fit in the odd game of chess? Is your schedule getting more crowded and accomplishments less satisfying? Then take a journey with Jim Magner, physician, husband and ... chessplayer. Dr. Jim went through college and medical school, married and raised a family, and still was able to get in some serious chessplaying. It was not always easy or convenient, but he persevered and fulfilled most of his life's goals, all the while maintaining his sanity and perspective. He is an average (Class C) player who developed a curious, yet often effective way of dealing with opponents who outranked him, sometime by hundreds of rating points. He shares with the reader his methods and madness, with 31 annotated games dotting his autobiographical narrative. These games are entertaining and instructive, and often somewhat unusual as they illustrate how one may prey upon human weaknesses. If you enjoy rooting for the underdog, then this is the little chess book for you! Over the years Dr. Magner also has provided advice about life and career to countless medical students and trainees, and in this heartwarming book, he also shares his tips for success in family, finances and life itself. Dr. James Magner was born in Quincy, IL and attended the Pritzker School of Medicine in Chicago. He is a husband, father, endocrinologist, and Vice President of Clinical Research for a biotechnology company. He lives near New Haven, Connecticut.
