I am a bit surprised by 4...Cd7 as a choice, since it seemed like 4...Af5 overshadows it by a long time.

I like that 4...Af5/7...e6 in Vidit DVD, and am still wondering why a book does not cover this line.

I have been told that the book gets out on Friday.

The preface is an interesting read, don't miss it.

While he doesn't cover ...e6 in the classical with 4...Bf5 (and doesn't cover 4...Bf5 at all), it is noticeable (as already posted) that he covers both 3...c5 and 3...Bf5 in the Advanced and 3...Nf6 in the Two Knights.
For the latter we have so far only Vidit (in a somewhat sloppy way ending one video abruptly and then offering an update video which more or less contradicts the previous one) and Kornev (not at great detail). Fernandez does seem to have more details to offer than Kornev, and while he doesn't list Kornev in the bibliography, he does list Vidit.

This is the first Caro-Kann book in a long while that recommends 4...Cd7 in the main line. I was hoping for 7...e6 in the 4...Af5 line, but it is the other main line instead Cheesy

I noticed that he gave 5...Ce7 as alternative line to 5...c5 in the Advance. I wonder if that leads to the plan with ...g5?

So two Caro-Kann black books next week. Sounds fun!

According to distributor Niggemann it will be available next week (May 25th 2018).

The most important repertoire choices are:
2Knights: 3...Nf6
Advance: both 3...c5 and 3...Bf5 (4 Nf3 e6 5 Be2 c5&Ne7)
Main Line: 4...Nd7 (with 10...Qc7 and 14...Rd8)

At Niggemann you can see the complete ToC and a preview of 26 pages.
If you can find it ... I wait with a link until it‘s on the publisher‘s homepage.

But Thinkers Publishing published Modernised Nimzo/QGD or something and Modernised Benkö earlier this year?

If Bologan's new book isn't enough, there will shortly be an alternative: The Modernized Caro-Kann by GM Daniel Fernandez, from Thinkers Publishing (not Metropolitan Publishing, who produced two excellent "Modernized" books but now seem to have given up). Like Bologan, it seems that Fernandez will provide "a range of alternatives for Black to cater for different types of Caro-Kann player".
