27 ( +1 | -1 ) IndeedSeirawan, now the number two ranking player in the US, has an excellent series of books for beginner to intermediate level players called "Winning Chess" published by Microsoft Press. The titles in the series are "Play," "Tactics," "Openings," "Brilliancies," and "Endings". Well worth the money.

48 ( +1 | -1 ) Basic Chess Endings...by Reuben Fine. I'm really surprised nobody has mentioned this yet. It really is (still) one of the best endgame manuals out there. The only problem with it is, like all old books, it is written in descriptive notation ( there may be newer editions out there with algebraic notation). It covers just about every conceivable endgame ( even 3 knights vs. king! ), and has countless examples from real games. If you're serious about chess, this book is a must.

14 ( +1 | -1 ) Try...site www.sahovski.co.yu They have good choice of all-kind chess books. For this purpose - Encyclopaedia of Chess Endings.
23 ( +1 | -1 ) Fine's BCEor Averbakh's set are both good endgame volumes, but they serve more as a reference than a learning aid. Dry stuff, but a must to have on hand.
26 ( +1 | -1 ) I have heard many fine things ofFundamental Chess Endings,heres a link to a place where this one strong chess player gives it a rating of 10 on a 1(horrible) to 10(wonderful) scale.
