Tony Buzan (of mind maps/memory fame) is the subject of an ‘official biography’ by Raymond Keene. Don Cherry probes Buzan on a couple of Keene’s claims about himself in the book.
Don: Keene writes that he was ‘twice the winner of the Oscar for world’s best writer on chess’. What’s that?
Tony: I don’t remember.
Don: And that he is ‘the Chairman of the English Chess Association’. What’s that?
Tony: Sorry, my mind’s gone blank.
To unblank it, Tony may wish to read Cuttings.
