Am I right to  think it resembles Wojtkiewicz's white repertoire ?

The first edition recommends 2. c4.

It is extremely skimpy on 2...d4, advising a "reversed Gheorghiu Benoni" approach.  (That was also Davies' choice in his Réti repertoire book; one game he gave was Damljanovic-Kamsky 1991.)

Also has but the merest mention of what to do against 2...dc, suggesting 3. e3 with the idea Bxc4, 0-0, Qe2, Rd1 (delaying d4) ŕ la Zvjaginsev.  (I recall that Carsten Hansen had something on that recently on Chess Pub.)

On 2...e6 it recommends 3. d4 (with the idea of aiming for a Catalan), saying that on 3. g3, dc is "a very good move." 

So surely the first two (2...d4 and 2...dc) are fleshed out in the second edition (?) ...   

Them not being fleshed out and me having issues with them is what made me stop following the repertoire recommended in the first edition.

In the latest JW show on chess.fm Hansen states that the book will be out early October.
  

Don't check me with no lightweight stuff.

I just opened the sor.zip file without any problems. Seams like a standard *.zip file.
Did a quick search and found no games with 1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 and "only" three games with 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 (e6 3.g3)
But further than that, the games dont give any answer to your questions alumbrado.

I will probably order the book when it is available as it seams to have a lot in common with the Kramnik series -which I use as a basis for my repertoire.

No - although I assumed that was me being incompetent Undecided

So, I guess, you could not open the sor.zip-files either ?

I never saw the first edition of this book, despite the fact that I have been playing a lot of the lines it seems to be talking about with White Undecided

I am interested, if anybody can tell me, what the book gives after 1.Nf3 d5. Does it recommend 2.c4 or 2.d4? And if 2.c4 what does it give against 2...d4, 2...dxc4 and 2...e6 3.g3 dxc4!? ?

By the way, what was recommended in Edition 1 against 1. Nf3 Nc6 intending 2. c4 e5 (presuming that the "strategic" move-order 1. Nf3, 2. c4, 3.g3 is meant to avoid 1. c4 e5)  ?

Sorry for asking, but the book is sadly out of print,  with few signs of a second life, unless... ???
