Petroff Powerbook and Petroff Powerbase 2020

Opening Repertoire The Petroff
I see that Mr Lakdawala has a new booking coming out on the Petroff.....whilst I have no idea how he is able to produce so many books I did think his move by move Petroff book was very good.

'Fight 1.e4 like Caruana' Petroff repertoire
Anyone checked this repertoire from IM Christof Sielecki aka Chessexplained? It's a complete 1.e4 e5 repertoire based on the lines Caruana plays. It is on Chessable.
What's your opinion on it?
