      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.
