It is such a good book that most other English books pale by comparison

Really?  I rather like Carsten Hansen's books and also the fairly recent Raetsky/Chetverik book on the 1...e5 lines.  And of course there are the old Watson books (he updated the Symmetrical one at some point, much of it completely new because of the explosion in Hedgehog theory apart from anything else, but of course that is now out of date too), and the series by Bagirov.  All excellent in their time and certainly much more detailed.

Not that I don't like Tony's book, you understand - far from it, I have used it quite a bit myself at times.

I no longer play the English (I need to play an opening that forces me to develop - hence 1.e4), but when I did, Dynamic English was my main book.  It's one fault (and it's minor, and I know about profit margins in chessbook publishing) is that it isn't always in-depth enough for me.  It is such a good book that most other English books pale by comparison, so it would be great if there was more "meat" to it.  But again, I understand about the fine line that authors and publishers have to walk when determining the length of a book.  Dynamic English is a great book, and I think a new edition would sell very well...just like Watson's Play the French series...

Actually, publishers are always asking me to write something for them, and I can pretty much choose the subject myself. However, to be frank, I don't like writing books, it is a lot of work for not very much money!
I am very happy to do another video/DVD but perhaps you should suggest this idea to Murray Chandler at bad Bishop/Gambit!

Well, I'm glad to hear that the book is selling well. I know I bought it because I read a favorable review by IM Silman.

However, why must authors wait for publishers to ask them to write a book? Can't it be the other way around, the author contacting the publishers about writing a book?

If there is one area that probably needs updating is the chapter vs. the English defence. In the book it's only 2 pages. Yet, in the chesspublishing database, 1 c4 b6 has a tremendous score for black. Not that I face it all the time as White, but it's something to think about.

Tony - How about a Bad Bishop video/DVD on 1.c4 based on your book "The Dynamic English"? Just an idea.  Wink

New Edition of "Dynamic English"

I know it's been at least hinted that a new edition of "The Dynamic English" might be written.  Is this already in the works, or are there plans sometime soon in the future for a new edition?
