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!
Now, the book also focuses on some other variations outside of the Benko, for instance the Verezov Attack and the very dangerous Colle System. To master the counterplay of the Verezov attack or the Colle, this book is just an introduction. Specifically the Colle can get you into a lot of trouble if you don't know how to respond to it. I realized after reading this book how little I knew about the other openings.
