"Mihail Marin's excellent repertoire books on the English Opening have helped to cement the reputation of Quality Chess' Grandmaster Repertoire series... Marin's deep experience and passion for the English Opening is clear throughout the book... If you've even the slightest inclination towards the English Opening, this trio of books is strongly recommended."
GM Luke McShane, New in Chess
"Marin introduces numerous new ideas that lead either to a small advantage for White or at least produce an annoying initiative that can keep Black on his heels... Without reservations, I recommend this volume to all English Opening players. 4 Stars (out of 4)"
