This book has been the standard reference work on chess openings for more than half a century and is the most comprehensive single-volume work on openings. The author, Nick de Firmian. is a world-leading openings expert and belonged to the team that prepared Deep Blue against its successful 1997 match against Garry Kasparov.

This massive stand-alone work covers every principle line of play in every opening variation, thereby providing the distilled essence of contemporary chess theory. It is supported with diagrams and chess grids for easy use.

An attractive feature of the book is that each opening has an individual introduction that will typically outline its important strategic concepts, present some historical background and summarise the options available for white and black.

Who should read this book? 
This latest edition is an indispensable reference work for serious tournament players. Modern Chess Openings is ideal for intermediate players ready to elevate their game to the next level or International Grandmasters who want to stay on top of recent chess innovations.
