  1. "Learn from the Legends" - Mihail Marin
    Marin, Mihail: "Learn from the Legends - Chess Champions at their Best", 2nd edition, Quality Chess, Gothenburg 2006

    An excellent book by GM Mihail Marin which won the Book of the Year award in 2005.

    The book consists of the following chapters:

    1. Akiba Rubinstein's Rook Endings

    2. Alexander Alekhine and the Fourth Phase of the Game

    3. In the Patriarch's Footsteps

    4. Tal's Super Rooks vs. Two Minor Pieces

    5. Petrosian's Exchange Sacrifices

    6. Bobby Fischer's Pet Bishop

    7. Karpov's Opposite Coloured Bishops Endings

    8. Viktor, the "Non-Existent" Hero

    There is also a bibliography, two forewords, short introductions to each chapter (about 1 page each), biographies of the chessplayers (about 1.5 pages each) and two indices (Index of complete games, Index of game fragments). The book has 331 pages and all the chapters together taking up 306 pages.

    I designate the games the following way:

    1. Information is the Chapter you find it in (e. g. C1 means "Chapter 1").

    2. Category (e. g. "Coverting a material advantage 1") - but I shortened the titles of the categories a bit.

    3. Complete game score ("C") or game fragment ("F") - since the book focuses on endgames most games are fragments (i. e. no opening or middlegame moves are given).
