Recommendations

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

The book if you want to master the endgame.
