I remember taking a look at that book.  My impression was that it advocates a system which is inferior on its face.   In general terms:  suppose Black plays a typical setup starting with the moves  ...d5, ...Nf6, ...e6, ...Be7, ...Nbd7 and ...c5. In such a case, Qc2 plus 0-0-0 by White should hand Black a ready-made "avalanche" type attack, beginning with ...c4 (with tempo!), ...b5, etc.

By Googling I found these links:

http://www.chessworld.net/chessclubs/forums_thread_show_one_posteronleftstyle.as...

Quoting from the first link:
"The Curry is similar to the Torre Attack, except that White will play Qc2 instead of Qe2, and usually castle long. It's the invention of NM Ron Curry and he described it in his book "Win At Chess" a few years ago."
