    Mastering the Transition into the Pawn Endgame
    Catalog Code: B0149NIC

In this book, former US Chess Champion Joel Benjamin teaches you all you need to know about successfully liquidating into pawn endgames.

It's almost as if one is sitting in a movie theater, watching the film roll by, with the narrative carried along by subtitles.
