Explains why AlphaZero is a stronger chess AI than stockfish, and how it wins. I recommend reading this book on chessable, not a regular printed out book or e-book, unless you have very strong chessboard visualization skills. My online chess rating increased 400 elo points while I read it.
We read this in my work book club starting in 2018 but finished it in 2019! I had read already Complexity: The Emerging Science at the Edge of Order and Chaos by M. Mitchell Waldrop after it was recommended by the trading expert Zoran Perkov in the book Flash Boys. I was amazing by the explanatory power of complexity and saw it everywhere from then on, and this book was a welcome addition to the material in Waldrop's book. The book covers, for example, how to do a post-mortem on a airplane crash, and use lessons to prevent future crashes, and most importantly, how to overcome bias in the process.
