Schiller's Book: Hypermodern Repertorire for White
What do you think about that book? The lines propossed are quieter than Davies (Dynamic Réti) but, IMHO, they are more "hypermodern".

English Opening: 1.c4 2.?
I am looking for opinions on the "best" or "favored" second move in the English. 
After 1.c4 e5 do you prefer 2.g3, 2.nf3 or 2.nc3.  I myself like 2.nf3 but that is fairly uncommon.
