    Mike McIntyre and his longtime girlfriend, Andrea, are in their early 40s and itching for a break. So they rent out their San Diego home - dog, cat, and furniture included - and embark on a yearlong journey around the world. "We're not out to find ourselves, or even to lose ourselves," McIntyre writes. "We're merely seeking a pause in our routines." But the couple is soon swept up in the adventure of a lifetime.

    Stuck in a job he no longer found fulfilling, journalist Mike McIntyre felt his life was quickly passing him by. So one day he hit the road to trek from one end of the country to the other with little more than the clothes on his back and without a single penny in his pocket. Through his travels, he found varying degrees of kindness in strangers from all walks of life - and discovered more about people and values and life on the road in America than he'd ever thought possible.

    Bobby Fischer won the world chess championship in 1972 and the chess boom started. The Village Chess Shop opened on Thompson Street, Washington Square Park chess tables turned into a regular venue, Times Square 42nd Street opened chess tables not only at Bryant Park but also on Broadway and several indoors clubs. Chess was every where. This book covers 40 years of history of the NY Chess scene. Great reading for tourists and locals alike.
