Of course there is no book (or books) that will guarantee you becoming a grandmaster. However I've read a couple of interviews where certain books helped future GM's get started on the path to the title. But it wasn't a case of just reading these books, as much as devouring them, in a sense.
John Nunn apparently solved all 1001 positions in Reinfeld's "1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate" when he was a junior, while Michael Adams worked his way through the 300 positions in Irving Chernev's "Practical Chess Endings", early in his career.
I guess one of the reasons why I never made it that far was I'm the kind of person who flicks to the back of any puzzle book to look at the answers, rather than work too hard on the questions. If you're that sort of person as well, then you will appreciate the following position which is problem No. 300 in "Practical Chess Endings". As it isn't too taxing a problem I will leave the answer for another day. White to play and win.
