Beginner Chess Books
This book has taught two generations of chess players how to play forcefully and intelligently. Thousands of people, absolute novices at the game and skilled players alike, have profited from "Chess Strategy," with such famous Grandmasters as Paul Keres and Reuben Fine acclaiming it as the work which first showed them the way to successful chess.
Edward Lasker was an expert and authority on many games, not only chess and checkers but also go, the Oriental game he introduced to the United States. General strategic principles rather than analyses requiring memorizing are stressed throughout the book, so that even a beginner or a player of moderate experience can understand the discussion. This method of teaching is unquestionably the most interesting and effective, because it makes the student think for himself.

The Standard Chess Workbook - Beginner
What is new about the present book is that it only examines an exact position. Such positions form the skeleton of all works on the endgame already published, but no one of these authors is able to resist the temptation to proceed further, from the simple to the complicated. So they deal with problematic positions, where what is required of a player is not only exact knowledge, but also stamina, fighting, spirit, will–to–win and so on. Thus you have here a collection of the 600 most standard (exact) endgame positions.
