My book Endgame Vol. 2 - Values explains modern and traditional endgame theory, evaluation relying on the count of a local endgame position and the move value of a move, microendgame, application under territory and area scoring.

The book is in its proofreading stage. There is one proofreader too few for the British English grammar and style. Due to time constraints, circa 50 pages must be proofread to the evening of July 8.

Please send me an email to jasiek@snafu.de if you would like to proofread the English in exchange for a printed and PDF copy of the final book. In the email, please confirm to respect my copyright, keep the contents confidential until publication and delete the drafts on publication. You might mention your experience with proofreading English very shortly. Proofreading can be in plain text emails, TXT files or simple annotated PDFs without JavaScript.

Thank you very much for your help!

While readers wait anxiously for the new tome they may wish to listen to the rather beautiful yose song by Mancunian folk singer Rosemary Hardin, sung by Fife's own Jean Redpath MBE, who may be know to many Americans because she shared an apartment with Bob Dylan.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyq5fkiKcG4

The chorus runs:

Who shall count for thee?
And what shall be the measure?
What in time shall prove to be thy greatest treasure?
