Dennis Monokroussos, Chess Today: "Certainly strong players can use this book to sharpen up their repertoires (..), but for the target audience (young players, players who haven't gone through their gambit stage, and maybe anyone to at least 1700-1800 or so) I think this is an excellent purchase. Highly recommended. 5 stars"
Bab Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad: "You would need to have a chess heart of stone not to try these gambits at your next club night (..) Another beautiful book from Quality Chess."
IM John Donaldson: "The Alterman Gambit Guide: White Gambits is definitely aimed at an amateur audience but some of the material will be of interest to stronger players (..) Strongly Recommended."
