Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Groundbreaking I can feel and demonstrate this book improving my game as I digest these problems. This manuel will improve me for several years. It's not as though I'm learning particular lessons, but with each endgame I am seeing the board a little more comprehensively. There are 5334 of these problems. Thank you Laszlo. This book is unequaled.
