Daniel Naroditsky has done it again! Following 'Mastering Positional Chess' the American chess prodigy has written an instructional book that is at least as ambitious as his acclaimed debut. Daniel has compiled a rich collection of practical endgame examples whose assessments require more than just standard theory.

In his fresh, yet surprisingly mature style, Naroditsky presents:

β€’ lively and entertaining lessons
β€’ crystal clear explanations of ideas and plans
β€’ useful insights into the minds of chess masters
β€’ great practical advice throughout the book
β€’ instructive exercises at the end of each chapter

Naroditsky draws heavily on his own experience as a player and has no problem pointing out his own mistakes. His systematic approach and didactic skills help you to understand rather than just memorize these endings.

Rarely if ever before have the ideas that decide endings been explained so clearly. This book will take your endgame technique to the next level.

Daniel Naroditsky (1995) became the World Under-12 Chess Champion in 2007. With 'Mastering Positional Chess' (2010), he was the youngest published chess author in history. At 15, he became an International Master and participated in the US Chess Championship. He earned his first grandmaster norm in July 2011.

Karsten Müller, author of 'Fundamental Chess Endings':
"An excellent book (..) Daniel Naroditsky is really a mature author for his young age!"

Martin Rieger, Rochade Europa Magazine:
"It is amazing that Naroditsky writes with the routine of an old and experienced grandmaster. I cannot remember when I last saw so much text in an endgame book. The examples are well-chosen (..) The book does what it promises and that is quite a lot."

Harald Keilhack, Magazine Schach:
"It is about practical endgame play, not about mainly theoretical endgames (..) Naroditsky & co's comments are verbally and analytically perfect, with tips on tournament tactic and thinking techniques. In these areas the book is almost unique."
