David Cummings is an experienced International Master, who has represented Canada at the Chess Olympiad. He is a regular contributor to the opening theory website ChessPublishing.com, writing a monthly column covering the English and Flank Openings.
Cummings writes in an engaging style and is very strong on explaining the ideas for both sides throughout the book. He pulls off the trick of making it very accessible to club players and/or those new to the English while at the same time offering enough ideas to tempt 1c4 aficionados, making this one of the Everyman opening books of recent times. -- Sean Marsh CHESS Magazine
