The endgame is the most complicated area of chess. In his book GM Rozentalis looks at some of the most important questions: the connection between the opening and the endgame, when to exchange, bishops against knights, be patient or just simplify.
Along the way he also gives a word of advice when to calculate as exactly as possible and when to rely on your acquired knowledge. He presents many examples from his own experiences where the reader is well guided and evetually is provided with a clear solution.
This book is highly recommended to all players as well as anyone who is coaching and cares for the pure understanding in the endgame.
