When I first opened this book, I saw the authors view off his first chess loss to a machine. For some reason I expected things to shift & discuss machine intelligence directly... It did, but not as I expected.
Instead through the story of Mr Kasparov's chess career, we see the flaws and strengths of machine-vs-human chess, and later the brilliance of combining machine and human intelligence together.
There is a bigger picture as well, of where technology is leading us currently, and where we can lead it.
Considering I've never played a game of chess in my life, this was both surprisingly approachable, endlessly engaging & well written. Very much recommended
