There is little novelty in the world of chess literature. A new book on a particular opening may be a useful reference work, but there is usually not much to distinguish such a book from the hundreds of similar publications. This book, however, has something new to offer, something which has never before been possible. The novel feature I am referring to is that, with the possible exception of a few printing errors, all the moves in it are guaranteed to be accurate.
Readers will probably have already guessed that this is made possible by that icon of our age, the computer. It would take too long to explain in detail how a computer can construct an endgame database, but in outline the method is to work backwards from certain end, or "terminal" positions, calculating the re-
sult of more and more positions until eventually every legal position has been evaluated.
