Everyman website says released June. I still do not see it on coming soon section of De Beste Zet or Schachversand Niggemann. Anyone know if it is releasing soon ¿

As far as I call, looking at excerpt he recommends in this new book 8...b6 in "New Main Line" with opposites sides castling, which was I think given favourably also in his Move by Move book.

Since there is no Index of Variations, I cannot see in big detail what else he recommends compared to Move by Move book.

On p. 10 he talks about chimpanzee and Planet of the Apes film when talking about Cochrane Gambit, so it looks like his eccentric writing style continues  Cheesy

I guess a key question is how much this book differs from his Move by Move book on the Petroff?


Totally agree, but without there being either an index or a list of games used in the excerpt it is going to be difficult to tell....

Doubtless Amazon will produce something in due course but that is usually well after release date in Europe.

If the content is different I would have thought that the publishers would highlight this to maximise sales?

Thanks...although Stockfish thinks 20...Kh8 is OK not the type of position you want in an OTB game....

I mean how he writes so fast. Book on 1. d4 2. c4 published few weeks ago no ¿ And before that French book...meanwhilst I am analysing a specific line in French Winawer for three months and still would not be able to publish anything if I could  Cheesy

Petroff avoids Scotch and Italian, which now probably close to as popular as White playing main Ruy López.

In excerpt, I question what point is of analysing endgame in opening book. Unless it has direct affect on long analytical lines, would be better to replace that with more detailed opening analysis.

Taking the work of C. Sielicki about the Russian Defense seems better to me. He's following Caruana's games and presented a very clear and solid approach. It's not necessary to have always the newest book.

Does he recommend this Nd7-Nf6 thing against 5 Nc3?

Then you may want to have a look at this game.. https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/german-masters-2019/3/1/2  Lips Sealed

Perhaps an alternative approach, and one that would reduce the amount of preparation required, would be for you to learn a third-move Ruy Lopez sideline yourself, rather than take up the Petroff. There's plenty of material available on lines such as 3...g6, 3...Nge7 and the Schliemann, for example.

I think another question, is why he write so many books ¿

I'd guess the reason he writes so many books and the reason Everyman continues to publish them is that they sell well.

Leon_Trotsky wrote on 05/31/19 at 03:30:35:
But from experience reading his previous books, his writing style is annoying. Hopefully he stops with weird jokes and anecdotes  Cheesy

I'd further guess that his idiosyncratic writing style is key to this success. Like you, I find it irritating, but then I doubt that you or I form part of the target readership of these books, which are probably aimed largely at players who are dipping their toe into the waters of chess literature for the first time and who feel either put off or intimidated by the serious and humourless style of most of it.

as well. It's the same with his book on the Veressov and from what I've understood from reviews with all his books. It's why I never would buy a book by him on a serious opening, like the Petrov.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

In the pdf sample on page 278 he says "Black wins a pawn with 38...Nc4! 39.a4 Ne5 40.Bh4" etc., but after the game's 38...Nf1? (his question mark) 39.Kd1 Ne3+ 40.Kc1 he completely overlooks that it's the same position. After 40...Nc4 he says "The trouble is White can hold a draw here." In fact after 41.Bh4 (instead of 39.a4) b5 42.Bd8 a4 43.Bc7 Ne5 he now analyzes 44.Bxe5! to a draw. I checked this and couldn't find any big improvement for black. But anyway it's very strange to claim that black wins a pawn by force when the actual game shows a defense.

He knows quite well that some find it annoying. He has no intention to change. So we must cope as best we can.  Huh

I see, I found it now. This looks interesting book. If I had to play 1...e5 and avoid all White's sidelines in Ruy López, Petroff would be a good one.
