not good

Okay im going to be honest this book can't offer you much. I'm being serious in saying I came into it with an open mind and this dude gives a lot of stories and little content. Most of it is bragging on himself or others. I would instead read the books he recommended. just save your money or credit and get the 48 laws of power.

Life is a Game, and Ken has the moves

Would you consider the audio edition of The Art of Human Chess to be better than the print version?

You get different info from reading and listening to books. The narrator was on point. The music set the tone while I listened in my car too.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the personal stories and the way in witch they play out.

What about Mr. Gates’s performance did you like?

He was lively energetic and conveyed the points to Human Chess well.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Your either playing the game or getting played.

Any additional comments?

Great job, Applause for the author and the production team for uping the quality of audio books.

A good not great "read" but great listening

In my ongoing search for books that I can not just read for entertainment but learn from comes this book now in my collection. I knew of the author from his many appearances in "American Pimp," "Pimps Up, Hoes Down" and several music videos and player balls. I am a DJ about the business of music ((at DJFreedomLives on IG and SoundCloud so you KNOW I am for real) and know of this brother and others like him who went from being in the streets to "legit businessmen." Good listen, great advice. If you read/listened to Robert Greene's "48 Laws" you have heard many of these stories. one star off for damn near taking whole segments from that book. But no denying the presentation of Ken's stories. He IS a real human chess player (great new phrase to describe a kind of person, BTW) and you too can be one if you read this and all the books he mentions in his final note at the end. Add to that Dapper Dan's story, Oprah's story, Malcolm X, The Obamas, Nelson Mandela and Anything by Napoleon Hill. Get this and master the game!!

Bad and egotistic retelling of first book!

This is more or less the retelling of pimpology.

90% the material what's recycled, one dimensional and the egotism throughout the book distracts from the narrative.

The main flaw was that they did not allow mr. Gates to read at his natural style. The entire piece sounded slow and mechanical.

I like his voice but a lot of bragging

It is an easy read but I felt like a lot of his book was a summary of "The 48 Laws..."

a lot of superficial stories, but good content in the overall book. Another good book to read is Robert Greens 48 laws of power.
