For explanations, Understanding the Grunfeld by Rowson is a favorite of mine. But Delchev's and Agrest's book also has good explanations, and is more complete in terms of a repertoire than Rowson's book. I haven't followed the Grunfeld much, though, so I can't really tell if there are any glaring holes in D&A's Safest Grunfeld.

Any good Grunfeld book (aside from introductions) are going to be heavy on analysis and light on commentary. That's the nature of the beast.

Avrukh is still very good, but Svidler's chess24 series is the gold standard. I also liked Vigorito's treatment in the Chess Developments series, but that's not a comprehensive repertoire.

Grunfeld books

I have a few books on the Grunfeld and am currently looking through Dembo's book.  I like the layout and she gives plenty of lines for white and black.  Without getting into details, I don't agree with some of her suggestions though.  I am looking for a good repertoire book for black in this opening that gives good commentary, is objective, relatively current, does not have glaring mistakes and covers all important lines that black could expect to face.  Publication quality such as is offered by Quality Chess and Chess Stars would be an added bonus.  I've read some reviews of Avrukh's two volumes with QC here an elsewhere but from what I've read he's heavy on variations and rather skimpy on commentary.  Anyone have any favorites?
