Silman’s Complete Endgame Course: From Beginner to Master by Jeremy Silman
Silman’s Complete Endgame Course, by famed writer and player Jeremy Silman, is the one and only endgame book you’ll need as you move up the ladder from beginner to strong tournament player and finally to master.
Starting at the beginner’s level, all basic mates are clearly and painstakingly explained. After that, the critical building blocks that form the endgame foundation for all tournament hopefuls and experienced tournament competitors are explored in detail. Finally, advanced endgame secrets based on concepts rather than memorization are presented in a way that makes them easy to master. But equally important is creating a love of the endgame, which is addressed at the end of the book with a look at chess tactics, minor piece domination, and a discussion of the five greatest endgame players of all time—all things that every fan of chess at every level can enjoy.
If you have found the endgame to be a mystery, if you have found that your confidence plummets once you reach an endgame, if you have searched for an instructive endgame book that will turn your weakest link—your endgame—into your personal field of power, your search is over. Silman’s Complete Endgame Course is the key to a world of essential ideas, startling beauty, and stunning creativity.

This is a review of the Kindle version of this great book I have the print version and love it. It is apprantly an image, only. These buttons do not work on my android or on the PC Kindle app.
This makes it very difficult to test your understanding of the material and left me seeking a refund. My recommendation is to buy the print version of the book. Hopefully the ebook will get fixed in the future because it would be great to add portability to this fine piece of work.
Silmans Complete Endgame Course : From Beginner to Master
I can’t understand the negative reviews. Silman has used his many years of coaching experience to teach players the essential endgame knowledge for their level up to mastery. He does not overwhelm improving players with esoteric and boring endgames, He does, however, treat some rather rare endings because knowledge of the properties and powers of the pieces involved is necessary for players at that level to progress further.
The great Cuban is correct in his assertion that simple endings are a great tool for learning the properties of pieces. It is strange how often I have been able to beat higher ranking players in an endgame. Basically, my understanding of the powers of the king is better than theirs. I am not a whiz at bishop and knight endings, but they rarely occur and few players at the local club and tournaments are. Those guys are better at tactics and openings, too. I have seen Grandmasters disparage endgame knowledge.
First, Fischer and now Carlsen rose to the top by proving that even strong GMs are weak in the ending and can be outplayed in the middlegame because of that weakness. Silman is right, a relatively small amount of study can pay big dividends. I have forced myself to wade through several books on the ending and abandoned several others part way through.
I wish this book had been available 40 years ago. It could have saved me a lot of time and frustration. In addition to that, not only does he give the most commonly seen and necessary! In this kind of thinking, he takes a super complex position, even one that is still in the middle game, and asks you to imagine types of endings that might arise out of it, what forcing exchanges might move into that ending, and then explains how to put all the basic known endings into perspective with respect to the complex position.
I gained so much out of this that it is unreal! Another item I must comment upon is the tidbits of advice that Silman gives, which might cost someone hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in one-on-one coaching time.
I should say something about the limitations of the book. If you had to get one endgame book only, this is it. For instance, he thinks the payoff for learning certain rook-and-pawn endings is too little for the amount of effort that would go into learning them; but he tells you what they are, which is of immense value. In my experience, which is somewhat extensive in endings, the two books I mentioned are the best endgamme to this text.
Organization is by rating strength rather than by subject so it’s much less monotonous than most endgame books.
Silman’s Complete Endgame Course (Jeremy Silman)
And he splits things into bite sized pieces that are more easily digestible. If you want an endgame encyclopedia then this book is not for you, but if you just want to get up to jsremy with other people at your level then this book is just the thing.
Silman does an amazing job of keeping me awake, Fundamental chess endings was a great way to end my insomnia, and presents vital information in great fashion. See all reviews.
