2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d3 e6 4.Nc3 d5 and the bishop does not make sense to me. It just looks like a good French where White loses more time than Black with a misplaced bishop.

Playing black, I followed some of the advice given, although opponent didn't follow exact white moves described: I now have my Queen on b6 attacked by Be3. I have pawns on c6 and d6 with Knight on d7. Should I block with c5 or Nc5? or move Queen?

After 1.e4 d6 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d3 c6 4.Nc3 - I think playing 4...d5 looks good for black.

I thought of that, but I couldn't see how it would help.

Help against what?
Castling Queenside after 1...d6 ? That is a bit rare. If you have faith in the soundness of your setup you shouldn't be so afraid that you need this option.
Sample line:

1.e4 d6 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d3 c6 4.Nc3 b5 5.Bb3 a5 6.a4 b4 7.Nce2 Nbd7 8.f4 Qb6 9.Nf3 e6.
White has problems with castling and I don't see a trace of an attack by White.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

Another idea is to harrass the Bishop with ...c6 and ...b5.

1.e4 d6 2.Bc4

For a while now I have been playing the Hanham Philidor, via the 1...d6 move order. After 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 e5 I nearly always get a perfectly decent position, and quite often win. But a large proportion of my opponents (at around 1600 level) play 2.Bc4, followed by d3, Nc3 and f4. If I play ...e5 against this set-up I tend to find myself on the wrong end of a KGD-style crush. Is it better to change tack and play ...e6, aiming for a quick ...d5?
