I wasn't interested initially, but after reading the excerpt, I am.

I have one main concern: I don't know what the book is about! E.g. On the basis of the first chapter excerpt, this seems to be a guide for white against black's gambit attempts after d4 c4. But there is no coverage of the Benko (according to the contents, at least). What is covered, and what isn't? Is it from both white's perspective and black's perspective, or just from white's?

Nonethess, the excerpt is intriguing. Firstly, there is attention to historically important games. Secondly, the recommendation against the Budapest is offbeat, straightforward, aggressive, and seems to be a viable try for white.

If the excerpt is an indication of what the remainder of the book is like (straightforward attacking repertoire for white against gambit black openings vs 1.d4), then it looks like it offers something meaningful compared to other books on the market.

Yes, it should be interesting to know what are the suggested lines for White vs.the various gambits... From the PDF excerpt, what I see vs the Budapest is 4.e3 with early f4 idea, so it looks a non-mainline, off-beat repertoire!?

I think the rook did it.

That's about it.

Looks nice though. Will take a look if I find it in a bookstall.

Anyone can write a short review of Gambit Killer by Salgado Lopez (Thinkers Publishing), aimed at defeating the most popular Black Gambits vs 1.d4?
