If you want explanations there is the DVD "ABC of the Bogo Indian". First there are some explanation, including of lines not in repertour.

After that comes repertour. The notable things is that the repertouar vs  4 Bd2 recommends c5!? and vs 4 Nc3 Bxc3.

However for a repertouar there are probebly better sources.
I think that the Bogo Indian is a more simple and less complex, less concrete, less theoretical and less sharp opening than Nimzo Indian.

I guess the the Bogo book that comes closest to complete is The Modern Bogo 1.d4 e6: A Complete Guide for Black by Antic and Maksimovic (2014).

It's much longer than the others just mentioned and seems to give Black several options in many of the lines. Despite ostensibly being more about the specific move order 1.d4 e6, it looks like more than half of the lines covered transpose to the "real" Bogo-Indian. (Disclaimer: I neither own nor have read this book).

The normal answer here when there isn't a "complete" style book available is ChessPublishing, but the Bogo-Indian is quite a rare bird in the updates. On the other hand it's a solid opening where theoretical evaluations don't change dramatically every week, so CP should still be useful.

I remember some pretty good ones from a while back, one by Steffen Pederssen and another even older one that I liked more by Shaun Talbut. They're probably pretty dated by now, unfortunately.

It seems as though most works on the Bogo-Indian tend to be repertoire books, which recommend specific lines rather than explain or rationalize the positions and ideas derived from playing the opening. Is this because the Bogo shares enough characteristics with the Nimzo-Indian that it's superfluous to go into extensive detail? Or only because the Bogo is regarded as an alternative to the Nimzo in a repertoire? Regardless: are there any good guides to the Bogo in toto?
