Summary and Info
This book offers a very narrow opening repertoire, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I believe that it is necessary to develop a more specific repertoire and to become an expert in one particular opening, rather than spending vast amounts of time on different openings when one would serve just fine. This book is also easy to read, with helpful "main lines" in bold print and large chess diagrams, and then "sidelines" in regular print and smaller diagrams. This is the kind of chess book you don't need a chess board to read, which is pretty dang rare in the world of chess books. I definetly reccomend this book.
