The average club or tournament player has little time for an exhaustive study of opening theory, but does need to obtain a satisfactory middle-game position. This work is intended to provide all he needs to know to reach interesting and sharp positions which offer good prospects for the imaginative player. The authors give one line against each popular variation, with particular care being taken to choose systems which will suit the attacking player's style. A parallel volume, "Chess Openings for You", is intended to be equally suited to the positional player. Grandmaster Raymond Keene has written many chess books, including "How to Play the Nimzo-Indian" (with Shaun Taulbut) and "Batsford Chess Openings" (with Gary Kasparov). International Master David Levy specializes in sharp variations, his works including "Sicilian Dragon: Classical and Levenfish Variations" and "How to Play the King's Indian Defence".
