It's so rare that a 2700 player writes a book (Avrukh was when he wrote his GM repertoire 1.d4 if I'm good remebering) but what about a 2800 elo player ?

Najdorf 6.Be3 e5.
OK, Najdorf gurus: having looked at some variations it appears to me that 6...e5 is a good answer to 6.Be6,  Anyone disagree?  Would anyone care to say what the most critical challenge is?
