Reviews - What do customers think about Practical Rook Endings (Progress in Chess)?

Essential reading if you play in chess tournaments!  Feb 5, 2007
Rook endings are not always simple. Try to study rook endings with 7 (4x3) or more pawns and you'll see my point of view. It deserves a lot of experience to play them well. Korchnoi's mastery in these kind of endings and his explanations make this book a classic; this is not a book for beginers, though. If you're a newbie try first "Practical Rook Endings" by Mednis (a must-have, great book), "The Survival Guide to Rook Endings" by John Emms, "Starting Out: Rook endgames" by Chris Wards or "A Practical Guide to Rook Endings" by Nikolay Minev. I can't recommend Smyslov and Levenfish's book because it is full of blunders and quite confusing (I have to admit that I lost my time reading it)... Averbach's book is a rarity nowadays and "Encyclopaedia of Chess Endings"(Matanovic et al.,Chess Informant Series) is a pain to read (though helpful if you are a correspondence player)...
For advanced players I would also recommend some general ending software like those of Chess Assistant and Chessbase (specially Dvoretsky's Endgame "Manual" - it could be better named as "Treatise").
Very good book  Oct 18, 2005
Everyone knows Korchnoi is a fighter. But he's also a good author. I like his work a lot. A very useful book.
