Play the Petroff does indeed seem to have disappeared from Everman`s website - perhaps it will morph into one of the new Move by Move titles.

The 5. Nc3 variation is quite fun to play, especially the opposite-side castling attacks. The lines with Black playing ...f5/Rf6 can also get very tactical. I was going to say I wonder what would be recommended in the Everyman book, but is this book even due to be published?

Oh yes. Its a very tactical opening. Rather more than usual perhaps actually, because its maybe bit short on strategic content.

Which I guess is why it ends up 'drawish' - if both sides know a fair bit of computer theory its very tough to do anything serious to it, and not all that many promising approaches either.

I've certainly had a few very mad games in the main line.

I read the Chess-Stars book on the Petroff. The Petroff is actually a more tactical opening that one thinks unless they study some of the lines carefully.

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

I emailed Dan at Everyman about this a couple of weeks ago and he said he was still hopeful that the authors would send him a manuscript but it would appear that nothing positive has happened....
