Averbakh’s handbook covers all the basic endgame theory that every chess player should know and it’s amazing how many don’t ; essential For a guide to strategic endgame concepts and practical play then Shereshevsky is your man. Dvoretsky’s ” Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual “harder work, but the next step after you’ve mastered Averbakh’s book. Finally, for an endgame reference work there is Keres’ classic ” Practical Chess Endings “.
This was the most difficult category, as I’ve read few of the great middlegame books.
Both of the shreshevsky works were recommended to me, and receive exceptional reviews. In fact any of the Dvoretsky books could be in this list; I suggest looking out for the revised Olms versions as they appear this year, or picking up cheap used copies of the older works.

Bronstein’s work on the Candidates tournament was the first book on to my list, and if you are only allowed one book on a desert island, this is the one to take. Thirty rounds of strategg between fifteen fabulous players including 3 World Champions, inspiring analysis, arguably the dawning of the new ‘modern age’ in chess.
There are many contenders: Timman’s ” Art of Chess Analysis ” is similar to Nunn but covers great games from the 70’s’; Chernev’s ” The Most Instructive Games of Chess Ever Played ” is a fabulous collection of well-chosen games, but I found the annotations annoying. Of course, Fischer’s ” My 60 Memorable Games ” remains a ‘must-have’ book, but I’d be more tempted by Kasparov’s five volume series on ” My Great Predecessors ” start with part 5 on Korchnoi and Karpov.
Interestingly, what is missing is a book of Kasparov’s games by Kasparov. The ‘And Because’ Category Whilst the above books will all help your chess, this final category of books are in because I think it’s important to know about the history of the game, in particular the Cold War politics, indoctrinated mindsets and repression that chess has been instrincally linked to:.

Also ” Karpov – Korchnoi ” by Keene covers a fascinating match; ” The Soviet School sheresehvsky Chess ” by Kotov and Yudovich is incredible propaganda; Nimzovich’s ” Karpov – Korchnoi ” is wonderful from a historical point of view.
Chess Tales ‘Must-Have’ Books I’m conscious the list is missing a pure tactics book find the winning combination ; any suggestions from Chess Tales readers welcome.
Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll give them a close look. That said, I’ve already got Silman’s book and it leaves me cold.

Saturday, 28 Strategg Definitive list of ‘must-have’ chess books. Here it is, the definitive list of the ‘must-have’ chess books. A couple of weeks ago, Ryan Emmett asked me to produce a list of the best books for an aspiring club player.
This task was way way harder than I first imagined, and has also made me realise I have some ‘catch-up’ reading to do. I’ve broken it down into 4 categories, picked 2 books from each, but also listed some other worthy contenders. You’ll notice there are no openings books, but only because the best ones depend on which openings you like to endgamme. Reuben Fine’s ” The Ideas Behind the Stratefy Openings ” nearly made it onto the list as a general guide, but apparently many of the variations are now too dated.
