Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual

Incl. 5% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

When it appeared in 2003, the first edition of Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual was immediately recognized by novice and master alike as one of the best books ever published on the endgame. The enlarged and revised fifth edition is better than ever!

Here is what Vladimir Kramnik, the 14th World Champion, had to say in his foreword to the fifth edition:

“I consider Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual an absolute must for every chess professional, and no less important even for a club player ... I always recommend this book ... I consider it to be one of the very best chess books published in recent times and I am very pleased with the new enhanced edition ... &rdquo

German grandmaster Karsten Müller, widely recognized as one of the best endgame theoreticians in the world today, has carefully updated the fifth edition with the help of American grandmaster Alex Fishbein. The incredible instructional value of the exercises has been preserved, and the blue text used in the first four editions has been replaced with text with a light grey background.

Mark Dvoretsky is considered by many to be the premier chess instructor of our era. His works on the middlegame and endgame have set the standard by which other chess books are measured.
