- "A new publication in the best tradition of chess writing: a serious tournament book... I would like you to see Reggio Emilia 2007/2008 as an intriguing and well-written novel, rather than just another chess book on the market... Marin takes us by the hand towards a crystal-clear understanding of the games... This is simply top level chess entertainment.... I hope readers will consider buying this very charming book; perhaps it will energize publishers to publish more serious tournament reports. It's too beautiful a tradition to be written off already." Arne Moll, ChessVibes
- "The quality of the annotations is excellent... you almost feel as if you were a part of the tournament yourself... an excellent book, and I hope many readers will add it to their libraries: both for their benefit and to encourage Quality Chess and other publishers to produce more such books in the future. 5/5 Stars, Highly recommended" Dennis Monokroussos, Chess Today
- "A throwback to an earlier time when strong tournaments merited serious books...All the games are annotated, sometimes by both players...Marin, who has an outstanding track record, does an excellent job...This is a great book that would make a perfect Christmas present for any chess player." IM John Donaldson
