Thanks a lot! I've been looking for that when I heard there were errors
Originally posted by MoneyMaker7It's got some good points, but really doesn't go into that many complex ideas in the endgames. His phrases are catchy and makes you think your getting something new out of it, but it's just a repackaged endgame book, which there are a million of. Don't get me wrong, it's an good book. If you never studied endgames its a great place to start. The last part of the book has the most useful stuff in it, but even then it could do more to explain more ideas. I would say even if you read this you would still need to study a lot of pawn endgames. This book is the most helpful for beginners-intermediate players imo.
It's finally here! I've been waiting a week for it. It's much bigger than I expected, not only is is 500+ pages, it's extra large too, almost like a paperback textbook.
I've skimmed over the Beginner, Class E, and Class D sections and I'm ready to tackle the rest.
Good luck to anyone else who has it!
