The first thing that strikes you when you flick through "Just the Facts" is the attractive layout. Far removed from the usual dry, formal look of other endgame books, Alburt and Krogius' primer has the look and feel of a labour of love.
Presented by means of interesting and informative colour-coded diagrams and call-outs, each endgame theme is reinforced by means of Learning Exercises at the end of each chapter. Interspersed between the chapters are mini-biographies of past and present masters of the endgame. These make interesting reading and lend weight to the importance of studying this phase of the game.
The emphasis is, as the title suggests, on presenting the reader with the essential "facts" of endgame knowledge. To this end the authors have gone out of their way to sort the endgame wheat from the chaff as it applies to the practical player. What remains is the result of years of teaching practice, and it comes through in the text on every page.
Each endgame theme presented is immediately beneficial to your own game, so you gain practical, game-wining knowledge with every chapter you study.
