|The Catalan is a solid chess opening system which is popular with both masters and amateurs all over the world. It is a flexible opening and can be reached by different move orders.

With many original analyses, based on the most recent tournament praxis Bologan takes the reader by the hand with the accessible verbal explanations he is known for. He explains typical Catalan strategic plans as well as tactical themes.
Victor Bologan is one of the strongest grandmasters in the world. He won many tournaments, including the Aeroflot Open in Moscow and the Dortmund super-tournament. He has written influential and acclaimed chess opening bestsellers like “The Chebanenko Slav” and “The Rossolimo Sicilian”.

Bologan writes very instructively and the material is presented in a very tidy manner, making it admirably accessible. He keeps things very clear and doesn't bog the reader down in complex variations. The explanations are good and the conclusions at the end of each chapter are particularly welcome.

An excellent book to begin with when you want to start playing the Catalan. (Richard Vedder, FIDE Master, Netherlands Schakers.info)
Bologans explanation of what White is trying to accomplish will be just as valuable to the layman as the concrete lines he offers. An excellent and up-to-date work. Bologan, with his clear explanation of the aims of both players, has written something that will continue to be useful even after some of his analytical suggestions are inevitably refuted. (John Donaldson, International master, International Master Chess Today)
The author has again demonstrated his ability to advance theory, whilst still explaining what is going on in a manner that everyone can understand. The easiest Catalan book to find your way around. Even the most complex and theoretical lines are granted textual explanation. (Grandmaster Glenn Flear, author of Starting Out: Open Games Yearbook of Comparative and General Literature)
Where else is this system dealt with so well?
