Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
As a startup book to ease you into the Winawer, this one is just about perfect.- New in Chess This is an excellent book and can be recommended to anyone thinking about taking up the Winawer, or to players who already play it and wish to improve their understanding of it. For those taking up the Winawer from new, they may subsequently find that they also need a traditional "variations" opening book (Giddins himself points the reader to John Watson's 'play the French' occasionally in the text), and it may well be that Giddins's book and a traditional book work best in combination (though I repeat that Steve's book is not skimpy on theory). Highly recommended.- British Chess Magazine
