Maybe I should not be so critical of the product. After all, the technology used to make the CD is several years and the technology is obsolete.

The analysis was given in html files, making a little more difficult to follow that just making a series of smaller PGN files.

The CD could have had additional games or analysis from added since the CD was made in 2003. Instead we have a library with no games since 2003.

In all, this was minor disappointment. The sole value that was gotten was a single line where White had a potentially better move than the common held theory. But even here, there was little to back up the claim.

My thought, if you are really into the Fried Liver Attack, is to analyze the position after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5 Nxd5 6.Nxf7 Kxf7 7.Qf3+ Ke6 8.Nc3 Ne7 9.Qe4. You'll probably come up with more ideas than they offer on the CD.

This is an analysis of the Fried Liver that covers only one black option on move 5. There is no coverage of 5...Na5 or 5...Nb4, for instance. I'm not sure that the sole move addressed, 5...Nxd5 is even the most common. I suppose one can, by way of defining "Fried Liver Attack" narrowly, limit the scope of this exercise, but those who expect the analysis to begin at 4.Ng5 will be disappointed. Indeed, since there is no relevant comparative analysis at all, there is no real support for the view that 5...Nxd5 is even best. Hence anyone seeking a resource for Black to plan a response to 4.Ng5 (I suspect the motivation of many potential purchasers) will find that all the paths charted begin with a single step - and that may be a misstep.

Also, the interface with Chessbase Reader has some bugs in it.
