Item description for Challenging the Grunfeld by Edward Dearing...

This is a a thorough guide to a very complex opening system for experienced players. Organized in the traditional 'complete' style, this is more than just a repertoire for White against this topical system. Experienced players are attracted to the strategic complexity of 1.d4 openings, but do not know how to deal with the dynamic Grnfeld Defence. Here, an International Master suggests that the answer is the Modern Exchange Variation, as favoured by Kramnik, Gelfand, Anand and other top grandmasters on numerous occasions. With in-depth coverage, the book includes 50 main games readers can play through with conclusions at the end of every game and chapter This is essential reading for both defenders of this opening system, as well as those who want to "Challenge the Grnfeld."

Reviews - What do customers think about Challenging the Grunfeld?

A Rosetta Stone for Grunfeldites  Feb 6, 2008
A true Rosetta Stone for unlocking the mysteries of how White maintains (or tries to !) an advantage in the highly theoretical Rb1 lines of the Modern Exchange variation. Well formatted, peppered with pithy comments and (including the chapter titles themselves), and crammed full of concrete analysis to back up assessments made by the author.

In such a volatile line as the Grunfeld, there are sure to be micro improvements and novelties found-a-plenty since its publication, but the underpinnings and foundational knowledge of this very specific line are so well detailed here that this book will be relevent for much longer than most other opening books. In that line, it seems to be in keeping with other efforts from this publisher, (Vigorito's Challenging the Nimzo & Marin's epic tomes on Open games and the Spanish) all of which seem to be aimed at a higher (rating-wise) market than their leading competitors.

To be certain, it is more analysis than prose heavy, but the narrative contained is as clear as it is concise, providing ample verbage for the rhetorically hungry strategist.

I applaud their efforts, and hope Pinski's next book on the mercurial King's Gambit delivers the goods as well as he did here.
