Go. I have never heard of the game Go. Knowledge of the game was not necessary in order to enjoy this book.
Cho Hunhyun is a master of the game Go. His memoir recounts his life and distill nuggets of wisdom.
He learned in the game that whoever had the unwavering focus until the last was going to be the winner. I think this is also applicable in the game of life.
The biggest take-away from me was the following statement.
Don’t be afraid of thinking differently and applying them in real life. No matter how small it may seem, it can playout in so many different ways-may it be a small change in one’s personal life, or a change for the better for everyone in this world.
Go is a lot like our life. Mr. Cho is one of the great winner in the game of Go. In this book, he honestly looks back on his 50 years as a professional Go player. He writes with his heart and soul the valuable experiences he has gained on the Go board. I’ve learned this book is simple but invaluable, which is that the power of think determines who we are and what kind of life we can live.
