    Van Perlo's Endgame Tactics - 4TH EDITION
    A Comprehensive Guide to the Sunny Side of Chess Endgames
    Catalog Code: B0053NIC

    ENDGAME TACTICS is an affordable guide that reduces the psychological burden of endgame instruction by showing that endgames are actually quite enjoyable because of the tactics! There is no substitute for hard work in getting better at chess, but the fact of the matter is that we always work harder at something we love. By enjoying the entertainment of real life endgame tactics, and (at least for the moment) forgetting about theoretical positions that seem distant from everyday practice, the amateur player learns to love the endgame.

It helped me win many Chess tournament games that would have otherwise been draws and also draw many games that should have been lost.
