Excerpts from the foreword:
The proliferation of chess databases has led to an explosion in the number of monographs available on various openings. As a result, every serious player today has significantly more opening knowledge. Therefore, it is currently almost impossible to "win the game in the opening". The middle game is the part of the game where talent is particularly valuable. Assuming that both players are approximately equally talented, the game will not be decided in this phase either. This means that today - in contrast to the not so distant past - in more and more games the decision is only made in the endgame. Therefore, the endgame has become the part of the battle that determines the outcome in well over half of all games. ...
... Many players have mastered the elementary endgames quite well and believe that they understand the basic rules of the endgame, but they are still disappointed with their practical results. There are three main reasons for such failures:
1) insufficient consideration of psychological factors;
2) lack of familiarity with important topics that endgame literature generally ignores; and
3) Not knowing when to look for exceptions to the general rules.
Practical endgame tips aim to correct these deficiencies so that a significant improvement in results can be achieved quickly.

John Donaldson/Inside Chess on the English first edition: "Readers who prefer a systematic approach should opt for Mednis' book. Mednis has written many endgame books, but in terms of memory training and readability, this is one of his top works. 'Practical Endgame Tips' is both inspiring and factual. Mednis' systematic approach of 'yes, it is possible' is proving to be excellent. His book is packed with examples of grandmasters - many very good GMs - who have 'messed up' seemingly simple endgames."
