My intention in writing The Hip-Hop Chess Master is to show children and people of all ages and ethnicities that following your passion(s) does not mean that you must abandon other areas of interest or talents you may possess or conform to the perceptions of others. It is entirely plausible for these talents/gifts/passions to happily coexist, thrive, and flourish together. This story is as much for the “nerd” chess player, band member, and school safety officer as it is for the “cool” kids and jocks. And in many cases, they are both! Please enjoy this book with an open mind and an open heart. Encourage everyone you encounter, or have the opportunity to influence, to be the best and to always, above anything else, be true to who they are. Now, you can experience music from the book including the tracks "Checkmate" and "Lunchroom Battle". Just visit https://soundcloud.com/thehiphopchessmaster

In his trademark humorous and kidfriendly way, Hertan teaches what you should actually be trying to achieve at the start of a game.

As a teacher, you have the unique opportunity to teach and inspire your students to be goal-oriented, compassionate, confident, and ambitious. Anna Unkovich, a former teacher of thirty-five years, made a difference in her students' lives through the daily use of stories from the bestselling series Chicken Soup for the Soul. For many years, Unkovich read these stories to her students and noticed remarkable changes in them, both academically and personally. Recognizing that today's teenagers have more challenges in finding positive role models, she teamed up with bestselling author Mark Victor Hansen and veteran teacher, inspirational speaker, and bestselling author Jack Canfield to create an unprecedented educational curriculum for teachers to use to empower their students in the same way that they have. Unkovich chose the most inspirational stories from the more than one hundred Chicken Soup books published. These stories, activities, and plans will enhance your existing curriculum. Designed to be read aloud to students, each story is accompanied by thought-provoking questions and exercises specifically designed and used by the authors. Your students will identify with each of the powerful stories and will be encouraged to apply the lesson plans to their own lives, challenges, and situations, and at the same time improve their critical thinking and writing skills. More important, unlike other curriculums, Chicken Soup for the Soul in the Classroom educates and provides opportunities for open dialogue on real-life issues, including character building and self-esteem.
