Your chess questions answered

One information resource I always enjoy reading is Quora. It is kind of a crowd sourced Q&A site, where users pose questions, and lots of people provide answers. The quality of answers is quite high, as people who are either experts in the field, or have a personal question to the answer, often chime in.
There are a number of chess related questions on the site, both about the game, and about ideas connected to chess. For example the first question that came up in my search was "How is Chess similar to life?" Other interesting questions are old chestnuts like "Is chess a sport?" or "What books should every chessplayer read?". But whether you've heard these questions before, or don't think they are important, I would recommend having a look, as some of the answers might both surprise and challenge you.
