Learning from Josh Waitzkin

Josh Waitzkin is the author of "The Art of Learning."  A really good book that I've blogged about.  In case you didn't know,  Josh was the basis for the movie Searching for Bobby Fischer.  A cool movie about chess and the prodigy of youth.

He went on to become a master of a few other disciplines including martial arts.  The book was about how mastery could be a process and talks about how to learn.

He just did a podcast with Tim Ferris.  Love him or hate him, Tim gets some quality people interview. I just finished listening to it and found it very enjoyable.  There was a few takeaways including my potential interest in meditation.  (Something I've always not really given much thought)

The podcast is free on iTunes or you can listen on the free app Soundcloud.  Worth listening to.  It's one hour 15 min.
