Now there's also another Wojo's Weapon-volume, on the KID with fianchetto for White. Haven't read it yet, got it yesterday. Seems good though.

Thanks Keano, my friend Smiley

Maybe the overview can be useful to someone taking up 1.d4 like myself. I haven't really studied any of these books so I can't really give any comments, just kind of browsed through them quickly to see what they got.

Well, just offhand, there was also one by Keene and Jacobs from about 1995 (the first edition was by Keene alone circa 1984).

I have sometimes wondered just how far the preoccupation with opening repertoire books can go ...

1.d4 repertoire books

On my newly started quest to start playing 1.d4, I bought and borrowed some repertoire books which I've been going through, lying in my sofa browsing and pondering. I definitely have a soft spot for these kind of books, though I'm not sure they offer the best way to learn an opening, but it's curious to see what each author recommends and definitely a comfort of having a grandmaster drawing up a coherent repertoire for your own lazy ass.

Below I give a little overview of the lines recommended in the books that I've looked through (I'm doing this by memory so there are some blanks). I also drew up a list of all recent 1.d4 repertoire books that I could find. Hopefully other readers could fill in and give additional information on the books they know.
