There are very few good books dedicated to the bishop finals. The chess literature has played down their importance. If a statistical study were made between the number of games that end in a rook ending with those ending in a bishop end, although the former would be more numerous, the proportion between the number of games in which the respective endings are given It is less than the great abundance of books devoted to the end of the towers compared to the few devoted to the end of the bishop.
Since each bishop only has half of the squares of the board (those corresponding to the color on which it moves) at his disposal, the number of available moves can be so reduced that in the bishop's finals it is very common to find positions of zugzwang
