Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual

Perhaps the best endgame book there is. Highly appraised by many grandmasters.

If I should name three favourite chess books it would be Mister Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual, which is quite a good book and of which I am going to buy a new version in the near future.

David Navara,

I consider Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual an absolute must for every chess professional, and no less important even for a club player

Vladimir Kramnik, foreword to the fifth edition

Also Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual is a high quality book.

Le Quang Liem,

The best book I’ve ever read by far is Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual. It’s definitely advanced, but Dvoretsky, may he rest in peace, was I think the greatest chess author, certainly of my lifetime, perhaps of all time, so his books I really liked.

Sam Shankland,

Eventually tackle the most highly-regarded book on endgames, Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual.

John Bartholomew,

It helps strong players to become stronger. I enjoy reading the book, and you can always learn something from there, even if you are a relatively weak player, or a very strong one.

Garry Kasparov,

The book if you want to master the endgame.
