“Playing the Petroff is devoted to an opening that […] enjoys the approval of several of the world’s leading players including Fabiano Caruana and several top Chinese players. Still, it has never enjoyed widespread popularity, perhaps in part due to the misconception it is too passive. This book may do much to change that opinion.
Playing the Petroff is a first-rate guide to an underrated answer to 1.e4. It is well written and well organized with not only all the needed analysis, but also plenty of explanatory prose to orient the reader.”
