"I would like to once again draw attention to the perfect chess lessons by Artur Yusupov, published in no less than nine beautiful parts by Quality Chess.
In the first part, all kinds of standard themes such as open lines and development of the pieces are naturally raised, but also combinations that lead to promotion, stalemate motifs and the complex theme of the opposition that remains a big mystery for many a club player."
Bab Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad
"I recommend the series to anyone from 1700 to 2200... Those with more than 2200 will certainly pick some things here and there. There are challenging exercises and you will have to put a lot of work."
