Chess Fantasia: 1001 Reasons Why The Game Is Important In The 21st Century (Particularly In Education): A Personal View By Matthew Devereux.
I found this article utterly fascinating and nicely researched with lots of great weblinks. The blog publishing of the first portion of what promises to be a great book is a good idea. Matthew has given us his first 101 reasons why chess is an important game, and will write the remaining 900 when he gets a book deal. I would certainly buy this book.
