The link for an excerpt is up at:

...But is broken. I'd presume that it will be up soon - keep checking!

Small update for those interested - the book is through editing and type-setting, and looks fantastic. 464 pages when all was said and done - quite the tome. I am giving it a final look-see, and at the latest the book is off to the printers by the end of next week. Cheers!

Indeed, Sveshnikov's position in that game was crushing! In my book I gave a very brief overview of the theory on 8...Nf6, and thought that 12.Ne3 Be7 13.Bd3 0-0 14.0-0 Bg5 15.Nd5 was a tiny bit better for White. This wouldn't stop me though, as the position is very thematic and White's edge is very small - I just thought the queen was probably somewhat misplaced on g6.

It seems the killer sicilian is alive, despite sveschnikov's loss.
  

The older, the better - over 2200 and still rising.

Haha, oh geez. Needless to say, don't buy this.

I just received a wonderful foreword from a multiple time US Champion, and a man who learned the Kalashnikov from Sveshnikov himself! He did a great job, and it will add that special touch!

Seems a bit pricy, but I suppose the time machine has to be paid for somehow...

We agree on all points! Hopefully it'll be worth the wait!

Update on the schedule: my book is close to second in line for editing. It will be something like 9 weeks until editing is complete, then another 3 or so for typesetting and final checks. Then it's off to the printers. I'm not sure if there's a queue and a delay there as well, or if that's already scheduled.

If you do the math that's October, which is what's on the Everyman site.

Interesting line - never seen it, as I prefer 4...g6!?.

Taking a look in my database, there have been two games, which I've posted below. I'd be happy to take Black after 11...h6 (which seems nearly forced) in both an OTB or Correspondence game, but I have little regard for king safety!

Objectively White probably has enough for the pawn/exchange that will fall after ...Nxc2 though - note that this opinion is based on 10 or 15 minutes of noodling around in Chessbase, not an extensive investigation into the massive complications that are about to break out!







Ah so you recommend 4...g6 then. Any news on the date?
