Summary and Info
I don't have a problem with this book at all. Sure, you can find fault with the "Dangerous Weapons" format, which is a kind of knock-off of New In Chess's "SOS" series. But it's a natural response to the information age: with theory as bloated as it is today, comprehensive coverage of any major opening could take several volumes. So you find a trick or two--something you might actually get a chance to play on the board--and you go from there. Of course I would welcome any new "The Complete ______ " or "Winning with the ________" or "Beating the _______" volumes, but there's no reason to reject the "Dangerous Weapons" format out of hand.Being a Catalan fan, I mainly wanted a repertoire against the Slav, Semi-Slav, and . . .a6 Slav, and am finding the suggestions given here very interesting. What's not to like?
