-An opening that is very popular at the moment has finally gotten a
good book (..) A real standard work.---B. H. Wilders -Nederlands
-Encyclopedic in scope, offering readers a complete London-style repertoire, and often with multiple options (..) An objective book that maps out numerous paths forward for the Londoneer.---John Hartmann -ChessLife Magazine (US) -
-If you want to sharpen your repertoire with the London System, this is your book.---Florian Jacobs -Max Euwe Centre, Amsterdam -
-Most readers will welcome the fact that the authors have included a wide variety of alternatives, and looked at them with such a critical eye. The London is no longer a plodders 'system, as with so much GM interest it's becoming as critical as many erstwhile noble openings. This will be the reference work on the complete London System for years to come.---Glenn Flear, Grandmaster and author of 'Starting out: the Open Games'
-This one easily has the more in-depth coverage [than 'Winning with the Modern London System']. There are recommendations against all of Black's replies (..) The book concludes with a very interesting chapter on the Pereyra Attack. It is easy to see this sort of rapid attack working like clockwork at club level.---Sean Marsh -CHESS Magazine (UK) -
