There are a few nuggets of wisdom (which were good takeaways), but for a chess prodigy/ jiu jitsu blackbelt under Marcelo Garcia, I found it strange that the author chose to recount the events of obscure tai chi tournaments - A martial art with no real validity in modern fighting (seriously - search for "Tai Chi push hands" into YouTube and you'll find nothing but grainy tournament footage and unfit nerds performing demos in their backyards). I found these long-winded descriptions mind-numbingly boring and irritating to listen to (recommend breezing through these in 2x speed at the very least).
