I am not a Grunfeld player, but I am curious how this book compares to Kovalchuk’s book.

It's a shame they don't provide more content details because their books are generally very good.  Let's hope that someone from Thinkers reads this blog site and they provide better indexes in future. I'm sure it would help sales.


It really annoys me that when they and Chess Stars dont show some of the pages from the chapters of their books, instead restricting the samples only to the introduction and contents. I really like to get a sense of the layout of the books - and given how few regular bookshops carry chess books now, it isnt easy to pop out to a local shop and have a look for yourself.

For Thinkers Publishing its more critical because their layout appears to fluctuate more than the Chess Stars one does.

the sample shows...nothing

Quite so! There are two other recent works on the Grunfeld for this title to compete with (Kovalchuk's thorough and excellent tome for Quality Chess, and the curate's egg of a book by Delchev for Chess Stars), so I'd have thought the publishers of this forthcoming one would be keen to give some indication to potential buyers of the lines being recommended. Instead, all we can see in the sample is a list of the lines that White can play against the Grunfeld. I for one won't be forking out for it until I can be sure it offers something I can't already find in the other two.

It's almost like Thinkers Publishing and Quality Chess have their own competition going both releasing Grunfeld and Stonewall books this year.


It will be interesting to see how the two Grunfeld (and for that matter the Stonewall) books vary in relation to the choice of variations for black in each line.
