GM Glenn Flear, author of 'Starting Out: the Open Games': "The notes are frequently heavier here than in the competing books (and TAPS is thus a rather thicker publication), with a liberal use of symbols as well as explanatory text. Most readers however 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. It’s a merit-worthy work with plenty of fresh material that should ensure that it will be the reference work on the complete London System for years to come."
John Hartmann, ChessLife Magazine: "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."
B.H.Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad: "An opening that is very popular at the moment has finally gotten a good book (..) A real standard work."
