  • "One of the best books about the Semi-Slav... covers all variations including move order suggestions... a very well written book. I have it beside me now." - Bo Bredenhof, ChessCafe
  • "I highly recommend Play the Semi-Slav for all those with an interest in either side of the Slav/Semi-Slav complex." - IM John Donaldson
  • "A well written book filled with deep analysis. You can just look at it and feel the many hours Vigorito poured into getting it 'just right'. Of course, the very thing that makes the book so strong also means that lower-rated are going to struggle with the rich and numerous variations. Therefore, I would say that those 1800 and up will get the most out of this book... On a scale of 1-10, Play the Semi-Slav by David Vigorito gets a 9." - Michael Jeffreys, Chessville
