Josh Waitzkin Interview

I just finished Josh Waitzkin's fantastic book "The Art of Learning" and wanting to learn more about him, and his approach to learning, I found this video on Tim Ferris' site

Josh is a former child chess champion, as well as a Tai-Chi push hands champion (national and international)… He has now taken up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is looking to compete in 2010, or 2011…

Check out the following video! It is a very good interview about his approach to learning, keeping composure during competition, with brief mentions of neuro-plasticity, Buddhism, Robert Thurman's "Tolerance of Cognitive Dissonance," and more…

Highly recommended! 

(Note: I hope to have a review of his book later this week)
