various endings and not theoretical studies which a player may never meet in over the board play. Every chess player needs a sprinkling of books like this in their library...something which provides a generalized over view yet is relatively easy to get through while at the same time not superficial. A study of this book won't make you a Bobby Fischer or a Gary Kasparov but it should improve the endgame technique of any player rated under 2200.
I myself got it, with no regrets.
Shereshevsky explains, with a very clear didatic, how we can work out the main themes presented in a endgame.
The capter about schematic thinking is very elucidatory: it reminds the explanations from Roberto Grau at his 4th tome (superior strategy), but shereshevsky's exemple are more faceted.
It treats about other strategy crucial themes, like how to get the iniciative, how important is the acuracy in chosing the piece to exchange, and how we can explore a d5 isolated pawn (a very important, and also classic, strategy theme).
As a 2200 rated player, i can garantee: with the basic endgames studies from Y. Averbach,V. Smyslov and I. Maizelis added of this one, you will not worry about anything more!
