Volume 2 is divided into eight chapters. Unlike Volume 1, it is possible to mix the order in which you study these chapters , but not to study the games within each chapter out of order, since the examples build upon each other in complexity. I suggest that the chapter on "Passed Pawns" should be studied first, because many of the various middlegame structures can ultimately give rise to a passed pawn in the endgame. Work carefully through these examples, because masters use pawn structures even in the opening to predict the properties of endgames which can potentially arise - this is a widely neglected aspect and can be a strong weapon for you!
