I hope it is a good book. It is a difficult subject. I tried to build a double fianchetto repertoire for white starting with 1.Nf3, using some material from GM Damian Lemos. I put quite a lot of effort into it and played some OTB games, but I didn't enjoy the games as much as I usually do, sad to report. I've gone back to the Trompowski with 1.h4 for variety. No dull games with those (especially 1.h4!).

I am going to order it to, being a lifelong 1.Nf3 player who also occasionally plays the Accelerated Dragon and the Hippo.

Sounds good, being a 1 Nf3 player it is hard to find many books on it as I think they are tricky to write due to all the possible transpositions.

As you say GM Hausrath seems to know his away around this opening as he plays it a lot and good on Thinkers Publishing for being prepared to support him with this project.

Double Fianchetto by Hausrath

As a promotional gift I got the 2020 calendar from Thinkers Publishing.
Contains some nice photos with a young lady holding chess books from TP.
And some covers of published or forthcoming chess books from TP, among them:

Double Fianchetto - The Modern Chess Lifestyle by GM Daniel Hausrath

Obviously this book is planned for 2020 but I haven’t found any other hint,
neither an advertising blurb nor a publication date.
But looks like an opening book. Or at least a book about middlegame structures
with strong relations to opening theory?!
[PS: The cover in the calendar shows a diagram from the left (a-file at the bottom)
after the moves b2-b3, g2-g3, b7-b6 and g7-g6]


Looking at the databases, I found that Hausrath has played some Hippos and
some Tigers but recently most often Modern Philidor and King’s Indian with black.
But as White Hausrath is a specialists for several Reti-English setups after 1.Nf3,
sometimes with 2.b3 but more often with 2.g3, followed by an Double Fianchetto!
