Has anyone had a good look at this book? Would it be a worthwhile addition to the GM Rep Modern Benoni? Has the Modern Benoni really changed much at all in recent years?

I play both sides of the Modern Benoni, and White against the other benonis once in a while, though perhaps not enough to make this purchase really worth it...

Cheers!

I liked his Grunfeld and King's Indian books, and the Benoni suits his approach to writing these books. A big question will definitely be what he has to offer against the 7.Bf4 variation, which looks like a relatively straightforward += at present (though Black is of course not without chances).
  

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

Well, now there is some additional information.  Are you ready?  I know I am.

(it's at the bottom of that page, at the moment)

Though the sample (Leseprobe) apparently isn't up yet, I see that the book addresses, along with the Modern Benoni, the version with delayed ...e6. 

A couple of the various things I wonder:  in chapter 9, how does he have Black playing after 10. Be3?  (I was reminded of this old thread:  http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1420841332/24 .)  What about 0-0 in lieu of h3 (as in e.g. Spassky-Fischer '92)?


Awesome. I was kind of expecting a hodge podge of benoni systems along with the new stuff. Has a bit more on the Modern Benoni than i had anticipated which is a good thing but doesnt appear to have anything on a number of lines such as the flicknife from what i can see. Makes me think of the dangerous weapons books, but havent a clue if that is an accurate description. Looking forward to getting a copy.

There is a new book by Milos Pavlovic comming:
http://www.thinkerspublishing.com/forthcoming-publications.html

The TP publication schedule isn't updated, so I asked them a few questions. It turned out that:
- the book most probably will be out in the last week of July;
- it is not only a rep book but more, with some move order issues taken into account.

It seems interesting - waiting for the excerpt to check what they cooked this time!

Excellent news. The recent Accelerated Dragon book has recieved quite a few positive comments on this forum so i am looking forward to seeing this book.
