The first book is devoted to the move 1...d7-d5 for Black. I believe that the most challenging defences for White to face are the Queen's Gambit Accepted (Part 2), the Queen's Gambit Declined (Part 4) and the Slav Defence (Part 5).
A few less popular options for Black are covered in Parts 1 and 3. In the second book we shall deal with the openings in which Black fianchettoes his dark-squared bishop. These are first and foremost the Gruenfeld and the King's Indian Defence.
In book three we shall analyse in detail the Nimzo-Indian Defence and a few other defences not covered in our first two books. This series has been written for players of all levels. The author hopes that it will be useful for grandmasters as well as for amateur players."
