    Book Description

    Chess players are known to be obsessed by openings. However, world champions have recommended that up-and-coming players should actually begin by studying the endgame first.

    This is because only by studying simplified positions can one fully develop an understanding of how chess pieces work.

    • A Guide To Chess Endings
      This book makes a fairly thorough study of those endings most likely to occur in play, especially those with rooks. This book is best worked through as a course of study, so that the underlying ideas are absorbed and a sound positional judgment is acquired it is at first not necessary to understand every nuance, far less to try to remember the more difficult variations; indeed one might pass over the sub-variations at first reading.

      A Practical Course in the Most Important Type of Chess Endgame
      For all chess-players - from beginners to grandmasters, and whatever their style of play - one thing is certain: rook endings will arise in a great many of their games. Yet it is precisely in this area of the game that many players give away hard-earned points, either through lack of knowledge or inadequate understanding. Most previous books on the subject have been extremely technical and theoretical, but this one is different. John Emms provides the essential specific knowledge and explains the key concepts that will enable readers to find the right plan in most common types of rook endings.

    • Endgame Workshop
      Principles for the Practical Player
      This is an endgame book. It deals with the final phase of a chess game, the one that comes after the opening and the middlegame. But it doesn't take the point of view that the endgame is separate from the other two phases. Rather it argues that the game is an organic whole, and that everything is related, at least up to a point. What happens earlier can explain what happens later. The book also recognizes that the endgame tends to have special characteristics. As much as possible, the author tries to bring out those characteristics so that the reader can come away with basics and underlying principles to help find his or her way through the final phases of their own games.
