    1. This is the first endgame book I ever read, and it's the only one that I've gone through cover-to-coverOS:-the most helpful part of this book is the prose. This book isn't a mess of variations; Pandolfini provides good, solid rules of thumb, and does so clearly. For instance, I've encountered the concept of "critical squares" in pawn endings in many texts, but none of those texts seem to explain the idea as clearly as Pandolfini's-if you're a beginner, you probably can't find a more suitable tex [...]



    2. The chess coach of Josh Waitzkin compiled more than 200 easy-to-medium endgames in a single, easy to read book. Most basic endgames are covered. Very good reading to any amateur. As commonly in Pandolfini's books, it requires no previous knowledge of algebraic notation as it uses very few of it ( it is endgame, after all =) )


    3. This book was very instructive. I liked the way that the positions built on each other. I also thought it was very comprehensive going thru many variations and combinations of pieces to help you figure out the best endgame strategy.


    4. A highly useful and instructive book for beginners and intermediate players. Pandolfini's selections provide both theoretical and practical fundamental endgames. Though a few typos will keep the reader on their toes, the material included is outstanding and easily digestible.


    5. Pandolfini presents a fine collection of Endgame lessons for the aspiring endgame student. All of the important positions are represented, along with concise instruction and in several case - alternate lines of analysis.


    6. Solid endgame intro for beginners. Suffers slightly from Pandolfini's tiresome writing--he is obsessed with using strange synonyms and unusual phrases where simple ones would do fine.
