Item description for Secrets of Chess Endgame Strategy by Lars Bo Hansen...
A large proportion of chess games are decided in the endgame or in the transition to the endgame, but chess literature has provided relatively little guidance for players seeking to improve their skill in making the vital decisions in these phases of the game. Building on the ideas introduced in his ground-breaking work Foundations of Chess Strategy, Lars Bo Hansen provides a thought-provoking and convincing treatise on how players can maximize the practical problems for their opponents while emphasizing the strengths of their own position. Under his guidance, chess-players will more easily focus on the key elements in the position, and devise plans for exploiting them to the full, and develop a better understanding of which pieces need to be exchanged, and which weaknesses really matter.

SHERESHEVSKY MOVE OVER Jan 4, 2007
This is an excellent book. One one hand, it's an update of Shereshevsky's Endgame Strategy. On the other, it's a compendium of basic endgame principles that also apply to the middlegame. The examples are contemperary and well chosen. His explanation are clear and instructive. His Foundations of Chess Strategy was good,this one outstanding.
buy it! Oct 6, 2006
what a great book! it gives interesting examples, clear explanations, and specific guiding principles for different endgames. normally i find endgames books dull, especially books without puzzles, but this one is fabulous. probably best if you are 1600-2400.
