International Master John Watson in his Foreword to the first edition:
"I never realized that Black could take such active measures in the Rubinstein Variation without significant drawbacks. This book is an eye-opener, and even top grandmasters might find that they have underestimated Black´s resources in important positions ... The average tournament and online player will appreciate Langrock´s straightforward, no-nonsense style. He keeps the complexity of the analysis within bounds, and highlights relevant details without drifting into obscure page-long analytical byways. General themes are clearly presented within the context of illustrative games ... The result is a book that covers a broad swath of material in a modest number of pages. I´m sure that you will be well-rewarded for its study, and come out with a useful new weapon in your chess arsenal."
