- McDonald is both an experienced author and an expert on the Leningrad. Both of these points come through clearly in this volume. I do need to explain that this book is best suited to players thinking about finding a new defense on the queenside, though some of the material might be new to experienced players.
- The ScotsmanPaul Motwani
- It's choc-full of great advice, ideas, and hard-hitting games that could quickly make a convert out of even a staunch anti-Dutch Defence mind.

- One stop shopping for those looking for an answer for Black to everything but 1.e4. The author is enthusiastic about Black's chances playing the Dutch in an aggressive fashion as can be seen in the lines he advocates.
