Grandmaster Glenn Flear on 'The King's Indian' (2009) by Victor Bologan:
"Far more than a mere repertoire textbook for club players. An absolute must and a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience."
Davide Nastasio, Georgia Chess News:
"This book is really comprehensive and written by a player who is really impressive at the theoretical and practical level."
CHESS Magazine (UK):
“Bologan’s understanding of the King’s Indian is second to few and here he maps out a pretty detailed repertoire for Black against all White’s options.”
John Hartmann, Chess Life Magazine:
"Bologan’s book has two main strengths. It is concise, and it offers multiple repertoire choices where Kotronias tends to offer just one. That it covers ‘sidelines’ like the English, London and Torre is also very useful. Bologan’s analysis is generally of a high standard."
