This book provides a thorough course in endings with just kings and pawns, from the simple to the highly complex. Armed with this knowledge, the reader will also be able to tackle other types of endgame with greater confidence and certainty.
Many interesting and beautiful positions are included, and there are test positions for the reader to solve.
