2003 Book of the Year - Seagaard Chess Reviews
When you are serious about improving your endgame skills, it is time for Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual. Publisher: Russell Enterprises, 2014
Perhaps the best known and most respected instructor of world class chessplayers, Mark Dvoretsky has produced a comprehensive work on the endgame that will reward players of all strengths.
For those ready to immerse themselves in endgame theory, there may be no better manual available today. But, even if you do not play at master level, the book has been designed to help your endgame too.
Basic theories and "must-know" concepts are highlighted in blue. You may skip the more complex analysis, focus on the text in blue, and still improve your endgame technique.
When it appeared in 2003, the first edition of Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual was immediately recognized by novice and master alike as one of the best books ever published on the endgame.
The second edition was revised and enlarged to over 400 pages - covering all the most important concepts required for endgame mastery. Mark Dvoretsky has continued to re-examine and re-work the material.
The result is this revised and updated third edition. Not only working independently, but also with the help of attentive readers, masters and grandmasters, the author’s efforts have resulted in what can only be described as the definitive work on endgame theory and practice.
Mark Dvoretsky is considered by many to be the premier chess instructor of our era. His works on the middlegame and endgame have set the standard by which other chess books are measured. He lives with his family in Moscow, Russia.
