The night before last, I gave a lecture about my new book (and preparation/finding ideas generally) at Chess Castle in Minneapolis. With the audience ranging from three grandmasters to several non-players (0-2800 FIDE Elo!), it was hard to get the level right, so I mostly tried to throw in a few jokes.
For those unfortunate enough not to be enjoying the Minnesota winter and who couldn't attend, I have attached some materials from the lecture - a ChessBase file and a PDF.
