In 2013 after Everyman and QC, I found another Najdorf book: Winning with the Najdorf Sicilian: An Uncompromising Repertoire for Black - Zaven Andriasyan (Author), Levon Aronian (Foreword), 
New In Chess.   
  

It has been said that chess players are good at two things, Chess and Excuses.  It has also been said that Chess is where all excuses fail! In order to win you must dare to fail!

Yeah it's like 15E more there in fees alone. I would go for it if I had more books to buy but paying twice the price for one is  disgusting.
Any news when Amazon starts selling it ?
Also publishers: guys, please, ebooks (at least kindle edition). People like me are going to hit torrent out of frustration instead of buying your awesome product Sad (and also having it in mobile device and/or computer is kinda handy when it comes to chess books). 
I would really like this one on real paper though but it's tough to find without paying ridiculous shipping fee.

I would like to buy it. Is it available in Europe anywhere ?

Niggemann has everything. Others shops may sell it cheaper though.

I have the first edition of "The Sharpest Sicilian" by Georgiev & Kolev, is there big differences in the 2012 book ? For exemple in the sidelines like 3.Bb5+ or 4.Qxd4 is there new material ? Thanks.


Main changes:

6.Be3:e5 & h5
6.Bg5: PP
6.g3: both e6 & e5
6.f4: both e5 & Qc7
6.a4: e5

The rest keeps more or less the same

He doesn't say they're a refutation I think? Just says they offer White more options compared to PP. I think just looking at the statistics alone shows how unprepared white players are in this line, and this is at the master level. The coverage of DPP is very light in the book though, need to study all of Wojtaszek's and Vachier Lagrave's games in the line + own analysis with engine. All in all I think the DPP is a beath of fresh air and until White shows something, I'm using it as my main weapon vs 6.Bg5.

About the Delayed Poisoned Pawn: "A bigger drawback is white's possibility to exploit 7...h6 by developing the queen on d3 or choosing 9.a3, followed by Bh4-f2" p.10. Do you really think those plans are the refutation of the DPP?
