Reviews

"Kotronias' book on the King's Indian fianchetto system (from Black's point-of-view) is simply a monstrous work, with no less than 720 pages... An impressive effort."

IM John Watson, The Week in Chess (full review)

"Some opening books will stand the test of time and this one certainly is a candidate... I am in absolute awe of the amount of work the author has put into these lines. Clearly, he cares for the subject, is passionate about defending it against all comers, proves it viable in all lines included in the repertoire, and keeps analyzing until satisfied with the outcome."

Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe

"It’s hard to write a long review if you hold a book in hands which is almost flawless. Therefore I’ll stop praising this book to the heights (although it deserves that) and focus on the content. The structure of this book is very good in my opinion as the reader finds some exercises in it with relevant features and important key ideas in the King’s Indian. This will give you an important assessment of your current level before studying this book and give you a refresher after completing your duty.

6/6 Highly Recommended!"

"For the Fianchetto systems in the King's Indian , there is now a Bible... It is an incredibly complete work and its purchase can be recommended without restriction."
