Csaba Balogh & Adrian MikhalchishinSample pages (pdf)
The third book of the series "The Modern Endgame Manual" is about the fight between the bishop and the knight, and also covers purely knight endings, and is the 2nd book on minor pieces endgames: in the first one we focus only on bishop endgames.
The knight is a short range piece, but a strong one. It is the only piece that can "fork" several pieces at the same time, which can lead to a quick material win. On the other hand, it takes 3 full moves to get the knight from the square e4 to e5 - and a full 4 moves to get the knight from e4 to c6!
The material inside this book is very useful for players at every level, from the complete beginner up to GM standard! After a deep study of this book you will be able to call yourself quite an expert, something you will hopefully prove in your future games!
