I think there's one planned for 2012, although it won't have my name on it!

Maybe Tony can write a book for Everyman on the Modern Benoni once he publishes his work on the Kalashnikov.  Cheesy

The most recent works on the Modern Benoni that I recall are Vegh's 'Starting Out: Modern Benoni' and Palliser's 'The Modern Benoni Revealed', neither of which attempted to be theoretically exhaustive. Fortunately Gashimov's games in the Benoni combined with the Yearbook, Informant and CBM cover just about everything you need to know below Grandmaster level.
  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

Most opening books are just the starting point for your own investigations, so if it's well written it could be just as good as anything else on the subject...

It's almost certainly not in most areas. I'm sure Flick-Knife, Fianchetto, MML, and the other critical tries have moved on since then.

A better book would be the Watson tome, but that still probably needs some work as well.

There are not too many modern benoni books out there. Is this one still relevant?
