    2. The Bible of Chess Endings for decades it's a great book I have the corrected version and Fine's original version he wrote in the 1940's that I bought for 0.01 from a Canadian book dealer brand new just had to pay for the shipping $6 both are great!People complain about the remaining mistakes in the revised book but we must remember this is a classic any GM who tinkers with the content in the future must be extremely careful not to mess with the book and change Fine's work to the point that it's [...]

I knew exactly how each move would unfold and what the result would be. Th [...]

    5. I've read many many chess books and this book comes with rave reviews. In some respects that is true. The in-depth coverage of each and every possible piece position. For example Opposite colored bishops draws with one pawn draws with two pawns ect. is almost encyclopedic in nature.On the other hand the book was written some time ago. Before algebraic notation and even though the book has algebraic notation incorporated into the text you still get the feel that its a fairly old book.In summary: [...]

    6. For many years this was considered the bible of chess endgame study. Fine covers a wide range of endgames, and provides the serious student with a means to strengthen their endgame play.
