Mihail Marin is a grandmaster from Romania. His books for Quality Chess have established him as one of the world's best chess authors.
"His own analyses are everywhere, which in Marin's case doesn't just mean a novelty here or there but also involves some well-thought-out arguments. His explanations are world class." GM Glenn Flear, New in Chess "The depth and thoroughness of the introductory comments is absolutely astounding. I now know that my knowledge of the deeper strategies behind these lines was very superficial and left much to be desired on several levels. This book is simply phenomenal and a must buy for anyone playing either side of the Ruy Lopez." Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe
