Jan Timman, The art of the Endgame, 2011
All through his career Jan Timman has been captivated by the mystery and splendour of endgame studies.
Even during his most successful and busy years as a world class player, Timman continued to compose studies and admire those of others.
For him there has never been any doubt that the journeys in this magical world helped him to grow as a player.
In this fascinating book, Timman has collected a wide range of the finest endgame studies by other composers
and explains in his lucid style how they inspired him to create dozens of brand-new studies himself.
As Timman writes in the preface: ‘Never before have I been so productive as an endgame study composer as in the seven months that I wrote this book.
It was a sensational experience.’
The Art of the Endgame is a treasure-trove for the lovers of beauty in chess.
But it is also of great value for competitive players. Solving endgame studies is a vital part of improving one’s endgame technique: it develops general understanding, calculation skills and resourcefulness.
GM Karsten Müller, author of 'Fundamental Chess Endings':
Uwe Bekemann, German Correspondence Chess Federation:
"A work that succeeds, which entertains and at at the same time makes you better at playing the endgame."
Marco Campioli, Torre & Cavallo:
"Not only a rich manual for the 'studista', but also quite useful for players, with endings to analyze and remember."
Steve Giddins, author of 'The Greates Ever Chess Endgames':
"Not to be missed at any price (..) I was absolutely knocked out by the quality of the content."
