Beating the Sicilian, Vol. 1, 2 & 3 — download book
This is not a typical Batsford opening book. Consequently the introduction is rather longer than it might have been, in order to explain the differences between other Batsford books and this one, and the reasons behind these differences.
The usual type of opening book is not necessarily ideal for the average player. A book like The Benoni for the Tournament Player contains a great deal of information and a large number of game references. All variations are analysed and if a player wants to know which line he should adopt as White against the Benoni, for example, then the book presents all the necessary information and allows the reader to make up his own mind based on the given data and his own preferences. However, for many players who have limited time at their disposal this may not be much help. After coming in from the office in the evening most people don't feel like going through pages of detailed analysis comparing one line with another. Even a strong professional player, who perhaps wants to play 1 d4 very occasionally to surprise opponents who are expecting his normal 1 e4, would prefer to have the necessary information presented in an easily digestible form so that he can quickly prepare himself for meeting the Benoni.
