An OK book for those just beginning to play; but if you're looking for any kind of in-depth analysis, you're out of luck here. Half the book consists of categorizing openings by Red's first move -- and that's all, no response moves, no follow-ups or variations, nothing. Very thin. The second half is a collection of 24 games with some commentary, which is better, but the games themselves are sometimes of questionable quality. For what it is (113 pp. from title page to the end), it really ought to cost half this much.
