    The back cover of John Emms' book The Survival Guide to Rook Endings makes the rather unlikely claim that a rook ending will occur once every five games. That would give us the rather splendid prospect of eleven cropping up at the Candidates', although I fear that's simply way too optimistic. Can you please specify which is the best endgame books dealing with ROOK ENDINGS. I'll mention some: * Starting Out: Rook Endings (). Chris Ward, Everyman Chess. * The Survival Guide to Rook Endings, John Emms, , Everyman Chess. * Practical .

    A good book is a good book, regardless of level. Even if you do not grasp everything, at least you get something. You can always come back to the book once you get better and learn something more. The Chris Ward book is probably good. Rook Endings by Levenfish and Smyslov is famous. Euwe also wrote a book on rook endings. The US survival manual is a great book i haven’t finished reading it yet but it is great, practical, and easy to understand and the diagrams are great. love the book can’t wait to finish it and then get when all hell breaks loose. also i got my FM at M and I surplus for around five dollars about six something when you add tax a great price to pay to save your life and others.
