FWIW department: The Brazilian mountain on the cover is to honor Octavio Trompowsky, the Brazilian player after whom the variation is named.

Elsewhere on chesspub, there's mention of a book published by Chess Stars. Is this related to the NIC book, as both apparently feature a famous mountain in Brazil on the cover?
The linked sample page is obviously from Chess Stars. New in Chess uses a different typeface in their books.

Click on “More Information”, it says “Publisher:  Chess Stars ltd.“.

Edited:
Leon_Trotsky beat me to it, but only by 45 seconds.

"Play the Tompowsky Attack" and has a picture of a Brazilian mountain on its cover. No mention of Chess Stars, but presumably it's the same book.

It was for a while. But during the mid 90s, the top English GMs who were at the time the cutting edge of Tromp theory, started playing stuff like 1. d4 Nf6 2. Bg5 d5 3. Nd2 .

The New in Chess book is titled
"Play the Tompowsky Attack" and has a picture of a Brazilian mountain on its cover. No mention of Chess Stars, but presumably it's the same book.

You got it mixed up. The book is by Chess Stars. The adwert in your link was by New In Chess, but the book by Крявкин with landscape cover is by Chess Stars.

Is not the point of the Trompowsky to ruin the pawn structure with Axf6 ¿ I think that valuing that much the bishop's pear probably openings like the Trompowsky (and Nimzo and other openings) are not to their taste  Cheesy

Tromp book by New in Chess

I've received a flyer about a new book on the Tromp by an author whose name is unfamiliar, Dmitry Kryakvin.

The NIC sample page is
https://www.newinchess.com/media/wysiwyg/product_pdf/7870.pdf

It's advocating the principled Bxf6. If you aren't prepared to play this, you are mostly just playing a Torre with a transposed move order. If you play Bxf6 at every opportunity, you eventually get fed up with the lack of dark square control and the delights of playing with a Bishop pair.

But perhaps there's something new. If you give up the Tromp and don't follow the theory, it can get weirder by the year.

Elsewhere on chesspub, there's mention of a book published by Chess Stars. Is this related to the NIC book, as both apparently feature a famous mountain in Brazil on the cover?
