When it was released in 2003, Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual became an instant classic. Now the chess instructor extraordinaire offers an introduction to the fascinating world of chess endings. This book is designed to highlight the key concepts of the most common chess endgames and will prove quite instructive to chessplayers of all levels.

The author has countless practical suggestions for improving your endgame play in this era of rapid-time controls so that you don't end up "drowning" in an ocean of endgame theory. Let Mark Dworetsky help you win more games as he examines some elementary endgame errors from master play and shows you how to avoid making the same mistakes.
