Perhaps the Best Endgame Book

Thanks to Stephanie Clayton for the generous donation of a copy of Silman's Complete Endgame Course. Our library now has 91 books, CD's, and DVD's along with magazines and other items. Active members can check out up to 2 items for up to 3 weeks. Be sure to check out our selection at our next club meeting.

Do you have chess books or other materials that you could donate to our library? Or a couple of dollars that we could use to buy books? Please consider contributing to this great club asset.

I reviewed this book on our Forum site when it first came out. If you only have three books in your library; this should be one of them.

Thank goodness Stephanie donated it instead of reading it; her rating would have risen so high she would be impossible to live with.

I agree with Jerry. This is a great book and a must-have for a 3-book collection! I'm not sure there is any endgame books out there that has this unique style. It's very practical in the sense it focuses you on what you need to know at your rating level, and what you should know to reach the next!

If you don't believe me and Ernie check GM Joel Benjamin's review on page 42 of the June 2007 issue of Chess Life.
