Essential Endgames - Starting Out: Pawn, Rook & Minor Piece Endgames
By Glenn Flear, Chris Ward, John Emms

Three classic titles from the Everyman Chess Starting Out Series in one volume
  • Starting Out: Pawn Endgames by Glenn Flear
  • Starting Out: Minor Piece Endgames by John Emms
  • Starting Out: Rook Endgames by Chris Ward
Endgames involving only kings and pawns are the most fundamental of all chess positions, and a firm understanding of them is required in order to become confident of tackling more complex endings that preceded them. As is commonplace with the renowned Starting Out series, there are an abundance of notes, tips and warnings throughout the book to help the improving player

In Starting Out: Pawn Endgames, Grandmaster and distinguished endgames expert Glenn Flear focuses on the very basics of pawn endings. Beginning with the simplest of positions and only gradually working through to more challenging material, Flear outlines the key principles and rules, and demonstrates how these work in practical examples. As one of the priorities of such endings is to promote pawns to queens, Flear additionally deals with queen endings that arise naturally from the simpler form.

In Starting Out: Minor Piece Endgames, Grandmaster and notable endgame authority John Emms begins with the absolute fundamentals of minor piece endings. This slowly but surely arms the reader with the essential knowledge and confidence to move onto slightly trickier positions. Using examples from practical play, Emms highlights the correct procedures as well as the typical mistakes made by both attacker and defender.

In Starting Out: Rook Endgames, Grandmaster Chris Ward begins with the absolute fundamentals of rook endgames. He gradually arms the reader with the indispensable knowledge and confidence needed to move onto slightly trickier positions. Using examples from practical play, Ward highlights the correct plans as well as the typical mistakes made by both attacker and defender.
