    Hey everyone! I remember reading a while back about a player who said he achieved a 2000 rating in a year by using a system of studying tactics and doing endgame drills. Does anyone remember the name of the author or his book? I believe he was an average Joe, no one famous in the chess world and that the book was simply his outline of how he achieved his incredible jump in ratings. Thanks.
