The Humble Beginnings of our Book: Rich As A King

Rich As A King is the first book ever to apply chess strategies to personal finance.

Lots of folks have asked how Susan and I came up with the idea to write it.

Here’s the story behind the book:

I first met Grandmaster Susan Polgar in 2010, when I interviewed her on my radio personal finance show Goldstein On Gelt.

After realizing that the thinking behind financial strategies and chess strategies is similar, I wanted to check in with a strategic thinker with a strong chess background. Who better to choose than Susan Polgar? After the interview concluded, we continued to discuss these ideas and we came to the conclusion that these insights could be the subject of a useful and interesting book. And, as they say, “the rest is history.”
