This is a book for those who have started playing chess and want to know how to win from good positions and survive bad positions.

The endgame is the phase of the game where most games are decided, and knowing all the tricks will dramatically improve your results. Endgame specialist John Nunn has used his decades of experience to present the ideas that are most important in real games. Step by step, he helps you identify the key points and then add other important knowledge.

Chess Endgames for Kids Workbook is the second in a new series of books that help players gain chess knowledge by solving hundreds of carefully selected exercises. The topics are very similar to those in Gambit's best-selling Chess for Kids series, but the emphasis here is on important practical experience. Many positions build on previous ones, and it is shown that advanced ideas usually consist of simple elements that we can all understand.

Each chapter focuses on a specific type of endgame and includes dozens of exercises with solutions highlighting key points. For each endgame, tips are given on key issues and strategies for both sides.

The book ends with a series of test papers that will help you assess your progress and identify areas that need further work.

Dr John Nunn is one of the most respected figures in the chess world. He has been one of the leading grandmasters in the world for nearly twenty years and has won four gold medals at Chess Olympiads. In 2004, 2007 and 2010 he was crowned World Problem Solving Champion, ahead of many previous champions.
