  • "Alterman isn't offering a White-to-move-and-win tome, though I believe that the book's quality will give its readers lots of free points... Alterman's emphasis is pedagogical, and I believe he succeeds in this task. Certainly strong players can use this book to sharpen up their repertoires (though Alterman rightly suggests that his book should be used as a beginning and not the end of that process), 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" - Dennis Monokroussos, Chess Today
  • "Gambits are wonderful, and not just for blitz or rapid chess. Offer some pawns, go for the enemy king's throat and have a good fight. Quality Chess has a new book on gambits from Boris Alterman, who we must forgive for being the mastermind behind Deep Junior... 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." - Bab Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad
  • "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.Young players, older ones stuck in the amateur ranks and coaches will all find The Alterman Gambit Guide: White Gambits to be quite helpful and at $25.95 for a 440 page, beautifully produced paperback very good value. Strongly Recommended." - IM John Donaldson
