Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an invaluable chess book for anyone who gets in trouble in the end game. It clearly explains various categories of chess endings and how to approach them. For example, it talks about two kings against two pawns, a king and bishop against a knight and king, etc. This well-organized and approachable text will really help improve your end game.

5 of 14 people found the following review helpful By D. F. Pooley on January 6, 2009
Format: Paperback
I haven't played chess for a long time, so I picked up a few chess books from the library to refresh my memory.

This is a good book for those more advanced than I am right now. I need to know more about strategy, tactics, and openings first.

Silman explains various endings move-by-move, with frequent board illustrations.

Unfortunately, these illustrations don't have the abc,123 notation (used in the text) on them, making following the moves difficult to follow for someone from the P to K3 era. I finally resolved this shortcoming by cutting an illustration-sized square out of a card, and labelling two of its sides with a-h and 1-8, to hold against each illustration.

I'll return to this book when advanced enough to benefit more from it.
