International Master and three-time champion of Bulgaria Nikolay Minev is well-known for his books and articles.

Acclaim for "The Life and Games of Akiva Rubinstein Vol. 1"

John Watson, The Week in Chess:
"A book that belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the all-time great players."

Paul Kane, The Compulsive Reader:
"A wonderful tribute to a sophisticated, subtle chess player. A splendid volume of record, deserving full praise and recommendation."

Dr. W. Schweitzer, Rochade Europa:
"A great achievement."

Johannes Fischer, KARL Magazine:
"Also because of the many pictures and the nicely readable lay-out this is a very good book."

British Chess Magazine:
"This is an enlarged second edition (...) and includes a number of newly-discovered games (...) Anyone who failed to get the first edition now have a quite undeserved opportunity to remedy their omission with profit."
