From what I can gather the reviewers have only been given one chapter to review (The English Attack)

You're presumably unaware of this, but it's quite normal for publishers to send out review copies of their books before the titles go on general sale in bookshops, so there's nothing untoward going on here, I can assure you! http://www.chesspub.com/yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default/smiley.gif


Very few books on this publishers site have any reviews posted even after publication so to have reviews posted before publication did seemed to me to be unusual ....never the less I'm keen to see the books contents when they post some sample pages.

The new pdf schedule say Decembre for Najdorf book:

https://www.everymanchess.com/pdf/Publishing_Schedule.pdf

Looks like they added Opening Repertoire: French by Lakdawala for January on that schedule, but that is topic for a different thread...

For the meantime: Have you seen the miniature book by Carsten Hansen? It's a lot of fun, lots of wins by white and black. And it only costs $5 on Forward Chess.


Got it, yes.

The last major book was by New in Chess. This was a while back now

But what is the point if 90% of White players will dodge the Open Sicilian and just play some anti-Sicilian like 3. Ab5+, 2. c3 or some other soul-draining rubbish?  Cheesy


I think I just be one of the few people who really enjoy playing against Anti-Sicilians, as fundamentally I think they are toothless if Black is prepared for them. When I’m playing league or tournament games the only time I get remotely worried is if they play 3.d4.

The book is extraordinarily brief. I'd suggest not to bother.



From the preview on Amazon, the author places the Najdorf in its historic context and advocates the plan of playing .. e5 where possible. Perhaps the audience is someone who is a relatively experienced player who has never previously played the Najdorf with either colour.

I wonder the same thing, being one of few who plays Open Sicilian with white Smiley. However if one plays thematical corr tournaments when the opening is actually played it is good to have some guidelines. I have for example played in 3 Najdorf tournaments at ICCF.

There is a new Najdorf book being released (Brian Kelly Mongoose Publishing i think).


Well, there is an IM named Brian Kelly, but this book (incidentally quite different from a 500-page repertoire book) is by GM Bryan Smith.


Thanks @Kylemeister, my mistake, I meant Bryan Smith.  Grin
