Black Community Leader’s Book on How To Help At-Risk Children Hits #1 on Amazon.com

One Move at a Time by Orrin Hudson

Bookcover and author, Orrin Hudson

Atlanta, GA — Orrin Hudson, author of One Move At A Time: How To Play And Win At Chess and Life, has achieved “best-seller” status on several Amazon.com charts. The Kindle e-book ranks #1 in the departments of “Board Games” and “Chess,” as well as top 30 rankings in “Puzzles and Games” and “Personal Transformation.”

Hudson is the founder of Be Someone, an Atlanta-based non-profit that uses numerous tools, including the game of chess, to promote self-esteem, responsibility, and analytical thinking among at-risk kids.

“I am so blessed, and truly blessed, because today is the best day of my life because I get to work with kids,” says Hudson. “Teaching and helping kids makes my heart sing and I’m so honored and blessed to be a part of changing the world one move at a time.”

Hudson, a former Alabama state trooper, was himself an “at-risk” kid. As the 7th sibling of thirteen, Orrin was in and out of foster homes and involved in petty crimes. When he was thirteen, a teacher took him under his wing and taught him the game of chess.

By his senior year in high school, Orrin had moved from in-trouble and at-risk to being voted “Most Likely to Succeed” and “Outstanding Student.” Hudson continues this legacy by sharing the game with children.

One Move At A Time details his message that people can succeed in life by thinking ahead, just like in the board game. Topics of discussion include: “All the Right Moves,” “The Art of War,” and “Plan Ahead.”
