|An Evolutionary Theory of ChessGarry KasparovDate: 2006-11-10 — $0.49 — DVD / VHS
|I finished my first Amazon Short today: An Evolutionary Theory of Chess by Garry Kasparov.I was amazed to see the idea of short electronic-article-like book while surfing Kasparov’s My Great Predecessors series in amazon.com in early December 2006. I came accross this $0.49 book (or should I call it e-article) and purcahsed it in advance as it was not published that time. Last weekend, I thaught to look for whether its already published and found yes – it was. I downloaded a PDF copy to my laptop at that time but today during lunch break I printed it and read. Kasparov talked about the past chess figures and evolution of chess through them as a beginner’s game to a master’s game in last 150 years and emerging into the computer age of chess as the last evolution in playing chess or chess styles. I liked this short book.
I also liked Amazon’s PLOG where I can find a personalized blog-like advertisement entries on the new arrivals of products in Amazon. But Amazon Short itself seems the best idea i have encountered recently. In today’s busy life, this only 49 cents article like books will give us a lot of fine-grained information, entertainment and knowledge I believe.
