It covers all the standard basic pawn/rook/minor piece endings and then a light dusting of the queen endings to whet ones appetite for later. The explanations are in words and moves.
This book won't make you an endgame expert/master/GM, etc but it will make you the best endgame player at many clubs.
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.
