I recommend The Panov-Botvinnik Attack Move by Move by Lorin D'Costa published by Everyman Chess 2013. Yes it is 7 years old, but I don't think the theory has changed that much. Theory aside, the games contain a wealth of ideas. Sometimes that is what is needed to generate your own TN. Besides, whatever your source, revisions in your chosen line will probably be required.

The games themselves are inspiring. The Panov-Botvinnik (PB) attack has generated some amazing games. That will be your experience also. Win or lose, you will play some real chess.

With the PB attack, white actually attacks the Caro-Kann. Sure the opening is sound. Yes, black has the resources to defend. But white is still pressing. From the book:

"The Caro-Kann is certainly not boring, but it is, indeed, a tough nut to crack. Most players have their fashionable lines against the Sicilian or the French, but struggle for an active line against the Caro-Kann. That is why the Panov is an appealing choice for the attacking or tactical player: straight from the off you get far more open positions than in other lines against the Caro, and without being bogged down with 25 moves of theory that the average Caro player probably knows in the so-called ‘main lines’."

I bought the Ebook directly from Everyman Chess. It comes in four digital formats. The Kindle format can be read on your Kindle or PC. The EPub format can be read by any EPub reader. I use Adobe Digital Editions. Either way, it opens just like a book on my computer. I can add notes. CBV files import well into ChessBase. PGN files can be read by any program that reads PGN files. In general, I've had mixed results with PGN import. I am very positive about electronic editions as I do most of my chess on the computer anyway. This saves several steps.

The title of my CD is The Caro-Kann B13-B14 and i cannot cover other openings (for instance D42). You should find other books o this topic.
Kind regards,

In case you are an ICC-member you can access 9 short "video lectures" on the Panov by GM Ronen Har-Zvi.

http://www.chessclub.com/chessfm/index/ronen/index.html

Is is also possible to pre-view part of them for non-members.

There is also an earlier thread here listing C-K books which could be checked.

Alterman is also treating the Panov Attack in the new "The Alterman Gambit Guide".
He has allocated 64 pages of 448. I think it is an excellent introduction to the Pannov Attack.

The downside is of course that you have to buy another 384 pages that you might not be interested in.
  

What kind of proof is that?

Yeah, this site is always a good resource.  But if you're looking for a book, Aagaard wrote a nice one on this system a while back.  It must be out of print by now, but I imagine you could get it from a chess bookseller.

This business of "I'm not going to treat this position because it's classified under some other opening" can be carried too far, particularly in a system like the Panov-Botvinnik, where positions arise that can come about via the QGA and Nimzo.  If you want your book to be useful to people, you should cover all positions that are very likely to arise after whatever position you take as your starting point.

If you wanted something a bit lighter just to get you started, there's An Attacking Repertoire for White by Sam Collins, and his Chessbase DVD as well, loosely based off of his book.

Sources on Panov Attack against Caro

I am trying to find resources to learn Panov attack. I have the CB monograph by Zoran Petronijevic (B13-14) and Caro-Kann Defence Panov Attack-Anatoly Karpov & Mikhail Podgaets book so far. The CB monograph by Zoran looks fine but it is irritating at times because it does not cover the lines where positions transpose to other openings (mostly QGA positions) I feel a lot of critical lines are not there due to this reason.
Panov attack experts I am calling you, can you please recommend me more resources, if there are any
