|Apr-06-05|| ||WorldChampeen: Minev has authored a number of books, 2 on the French Defense including a grand number of miniatures and an all round great collection of hundreds of games. He has written other books. As of 1988, he was living in Seattle. |
|Jul-21-08|| ||jakaiden: I have 4 books by IM Minev - The French Defense 2, The Dutch Defense, Mastering Tactical Ideas, and The Sicilian Defense: The Last Decade. All books are excellent and highly recommended for your library. The first 2 I mentioned are published by Thinker's Press which makes them even better. He offers many old and new ideas in his annotations. Nice work!|

"The Minev Project"
|Nov-26-09|| ||Adirondacker: For me, his best book was "A Practical Guide To Rook and Pawn Endgames". Of course two weeks after I bought it, they came out with the version that includes the CD (see here, for example: http://shop.chesscafe.com/item.asp?...) - I think the USCF has a bundle with the book and CD. What I love about Minev is he explains the "WHY". He doesn't gradually (nor rapidly!) lose the reader with deep theoretical stuff, but "keeps it real" for the beginner & intermediate player - and this was his goal. I say "Mission Accomplished!" Nikolay! I own over 30 chess books (yeah, I KNOW that's not a LOT, but...) and Minev's is by FAR the best & most instructive.|
|Dec-19-12|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Working through "A Practical Guide to Rook Endgames" right now. Probably one of the top 3 endgame books I've seen.|

Hopefully, his Chess Library Website with tournament crosstables will not be inactivated (as it happened i.e. with endgame.nl, briefly after its editor died).
THE CHESS LIBRARY - Tournament crosstables, from the 1800s to the 1980s, particularly chess from the time immediately following WWII, through about 1980, the active professional period of bulgarian (then U.S.) IM and noted author Nikolay Minev.
