A review by an Amazon reader:
"Anyone seeking to fully understand and implement the Colle opening in their chess game will find this book invaluable. The Colle rates as one of the easiest leading attacks for white to master; however, one should also note that it is unpopular among elite chess players as the average Grandmasters find this opening easily neutralized...which certainly speaks only to the opening, not the quality of the book.

The attack is direct and threatening very early in its development. Lane does as high quality job defining this opening and explaining the critical variations. If you are looking merely to beat your friends, play effectively at the amateur level, or just advance your understanding of the game by learning another opening, The Ultimate Colle will prove to be very worthwhile."
