MCO 15 -- The Chess Player's Bible

For almost a century, Modern Chess Openings has been the most comprehensive one-volume reference book about chess openings on the market.

This fifteenth edition of MCO has been completely revised and updated to reflect all of the latest changes in the game, including recent tournament matches and important works on theory.

Whether you are a beginner interested in learning the fundamentals, an intermediate player ready to elevate your game, or an International Grandmaster who wants to stay on top of all the recent chess innovations, MCO-15 is the best and the most trusted tool for learning chess openings.

Nick de Firmian is a world renowned expert on chess openings. He "taught" the supercomputer Deep Blue the opening moves it used to defeat World Champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. Mr. de Firmian is an International Grandmaster and a three-time United States Chess Champion.
