I agree with Alumbrado. As Black has to play c6-c5 anyway, it is a French Defense with a tempo lost.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Hmm ... doesn't look too good to me.  4.e5 is OK, when you have an Advance French with Nc3 and ...c6 thrown in, which ought to favour White a bit.  Personally, though, I would prefer to exploit the lack of pressure on my centre and keep the tension with 4.Nf3(!)

1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 e6!?

What should be done about this move?  How should one properly react?

4 e5 seems like the natural move, and checking with Chessbase, Kasparov played this in 1992 against an old version of Fritz.  However, the rejoinder to e5, as it seems to me, is 4 ... c5!. 

What does everyone think about this move, position, or maybe even suggestions as to what may be better than 4 e5?
