An earlier series of the same books had a different order. There the order was 1: pawn endings 2: bishop and knight endings 3: bishop vs knight rook vs minor pieces 4: rook endings 5: queens endings. Because of the popularity of these books, they have become rare and difficult to obtain. After a worldwide search we still have not been able to obtain a copy of volume 5. We had even began to suspect that it was a phantom book, a book that had been planned and announced but never actually published. Even the Russian language original editions of this book are difficult to obtain, although 100,000 were printed. In most cases in these books there is a co-author. Here, the knight endings are co-authored by Vitaly Chekhover.
