Well writen and good coverage of lines.
Courtney
Attack with black is a great book on the Benko gambit, that covers blacks repertoire against 1.d4 Nf6.
Roberto
This book united two attacking openings of very different themes in one common plan.

Very nice coverage of the Benko, including how to deal with White's attempts to avoid the Benko. Covers early deviations after 1.d4 Nf6 such as the London, Colle, Trompowsky, Torre Attack, etc, Also covers the sidelines after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5, with and without White playing 3.d5. This is a complete repertoire after 1.d4 Nf6.

A wonderful book!
The author not only covers the always popular Benko Gambit and ALL applicable variations; both main and off lines, but also give a very aggressive and practical repertoire against 1.d4 and 2.Nf3 systems.
the book has great analysis, but not overly so, as the Author takes the time to comment on the whys and why not's of each critical position.
This really helps the reader to understand the why's and how's of each particular variation.

Of course, this is a repertoire from the black side...so if favors White, don't expect many revelations, but the author does mention some tried by White..so it is just a bonus for the reader that he gets these tidbits.

All in all, the book really helped me understand the Benko and same systems much better, plus gave me a very viable and good wave of openings against the d4 and Nf3 that has always given me problems in the past!
I think you should really give this book a chance!

I am an expert-rated chessplayer who has struggled against queen's pawn openings for years. I have tried many different defenses but they either didn't fit my style, or my opponents were able to sidestep them which meant I had wasted many hours of preparation. If your opponents play d4 and c4 (or c4 and d4) then it's impossible to avoid the lines in this book. These lines are tactical in nature and offer Black a chance to put White on the defensive for the cost of a pawn. If you are a Benoni player, then this book is a must for your library, because there are many transpositional ideas here. Highly recommended.

I am a chess master and found this book to be a great repertoire book. This is a great place to get started in the Benko and Blumenfeld. Many of the lines recommended appear to be independent analysis and seem very strong.

Attack with black is a great book on the Benko gambit, that covers blacks repertoire against 1.d4 Nf6. Before this book I struggled with all the sidelines of the main gambit, but through this book I have found a reliable repertoire, and I particularly liked the Blumenfeld section of the book! This book is very instructive and helped me a lot with the Benko Gambit, and my reply against 1.d4 entirely!
