“Each topic in Volume 1 is covered in detail and in a highly educational fashion. A careful and patient study of this book will surely be rewarded by a substantial improvement in the readers’ players standard. I can’t wait to see the next volume and what else Ris will be showing us. Again, highly recommended.” ~ Carsten Hansen, American Chess Magazine 08.2018
