This major new work surveys all chess openings, providing a guide to every critical main line and featuring descriptions of the typical strategies for both sides.

These commentaries will be welcomed by all club and tournament players, as they will help them to handle the middlegame positions arising from each opening better, and will equip them to find the best continuation when their opponents deviate from the standard paths.

Covers all chess openings, with verbal explanations of the ideas. This is the first book of the modern era to do this.-

Carsten Hansen, ChessCafe:
"Anyone rated under 1700 should own this book and even higher rated players who are looking to fill in the blanks in their repertoire can benefit. It arms you with the knowledge of where to focus your resources when investing money on other opening books." 

Lou Mercuri, Chess Horizons:
"There has most certainly been a need for an updating of Fine's Ideas Behind the Chess Openings and this volume is the first book of the modern era to do this. Coaches would probably like to have this title on hand as they may often have the need to explain various openings."

Paul Dunn, Australian Chess:
"This book gives a survey of all chess openings to provide club players with a general guide to the plans for all major openings. Plans for both players are given. Players who absorb this material in this book can expect to gain a general knowledge of opening play. The book is also useful as a guide when developing your repertoire."
