Overview

Combining beauty and practicality, the endgame study is one of the subtle wonders of the Royal Game. Training with studies is a vital part of improving your endgame technique: it develops your general understanding, your calculation skills and your resourcefulness. But endgame studies, with their elements of artistry, science and hidden beauty, are at the same time highly entertaining.
Jan Timman is one of the few famous chess players who also have a distinguished career as a study composer. In The Art of the Endgame Timman has collected a magnificent selection of studies, relating how they have inspired him, and presents his own best material.
This is a labor of love which is not only a must-read for specialists and a source of joy, but also a practical tool for club players who want to deepen their understanding of the endgame.

Editorial Reviews

Martin Rieger
A work you will always return to in order to browse. And you will always discover something new.
Europa Rochade Magazine
Karsten Muller
Really fascinating.
German Correspondence Chess Federation - Uwe Bekemann
A work that succeeds, which entertains and at the same time makes you better at playing the endgame.
Torre & Cavallo - Marco Campioli
Not only a rich manual for the studista, but also quite useful for players, with endings to analyze and remember.
Steve Giddins
Not to be missed at any price. I was absolutely knocked out by the quality of the content.
Uwe Bekemann

German Federation for Correspondence Chess
Harold van der Heijden
Highly recommended, not only for lovers of endgame studies, but also for chess players who are interested in the beauty of chess. Timman has the talent to take the reader by the hand into an Alice in Wonderland adventure.
