Grandmaster Vishwanath Anand Releases His Autobiography With Hachette India

Few people know better than Viswanathan Anand how to tackle the gravest obstacles and overcome the toughest odds. From the time he learnt to move pieces on a chess board as a six-year-old, Vishy - as Anand is fondly known - has racked up innumerable accolades.

The first World Chess Champion from Asia, he emerged onto the world stage when chess was largely a Soviet preserve, climbed the ranks to become world No. 1, bagged five world championship titles and won tournaments across all formats of the game. An ambassador of the sport like no other, his is one of the most revered names in chess.

In Mind Master, Vishy looks back at a lifetime of games played, opponents tackled and circumstances overcome and draws from its depths significant tools that will help every reader to navigate life's challenges.

The book talks about aspects like the tactics and strategy play that goes in the preparation for achieving a goal, emotions which need to be be harnessed to be of advantage in tricky situations, precautions which needs to be taken before you decide to leave your comfort zone and embrace risk, how to stay relevant in the face of rapidly changing realities, importance of unlearning to learn, and a lot more.

These are just some of the nuggets Anand touches upon with characteristic wit, easy wisdom and disarming candour in Mind Master - a delightful and invaluable exploration into the self that will thrill, inspire and motivate readers as few books have done before.
