This is a major event in chess publishing. Two German endgame experts have produced a masterly one-volume encyclopaedia which covers all major endgames. It supersedes all previous works of this type by being far more accurate and readable. With new time-controls meaning that competitive games are played to a finish, it is especially important that chess-players understand the main endgame principles, so this is no dry reference work; throughout the book, the authors emphasize the practical elements of endgame play: principles, rules of thumb and thinking methods. They have also provided a feast of detailed analysis for those looking to study the endgame in depth.
Karsten Muller is a young grandmaster from Germany, who competes regularly in the Bundesliga and in international events. He finished third in the German Championship in 1996, and was runner-up in 1997. He is a noted authority on both practical and theoretical endgames. Frank Lamprecht is also from Germany, and is an international master. The authors' previous work together, a specialist work on pawn endings, has received extremely high praise and been nominated for several awards.
