My review of Volume 1 of this effort appears elsewhere on Amazon. There I noted why I find games by GMs against weaker players particularly instructive, and I therefore registered my excitement for this project about Wojo, who had many such opportunities. Volume 2 exclusively covers a Wojo-inspired white repertoire against the KID utilizing the Fianchetto Variation. Whether or not you are interested the Catalan, the subject of Volume 1, this volume stands alone as an accessible, focused, and instructive KID repertoire for white. Like Volume 1, this is not a database dump but a well-explained selection mirroring Wojo's own sense of efficiency (or laziness, which is just as well). The fact that Wojo won about 80% of the time when facing the KID instills a sense of confidence in the lines and in the authors' perspective on the subject matter.

I thought Chapter 5 on move order variations was particularly useful, containing an orienting review of the type often missing from opening books. On the other hand, Chapter 7 on the 9.e4 lines seemed less focused than the others and surprisingly features none of Wojo's games. Chapter 3 on the Gallagher Variation offers two alternative lines, going headlong into the chaos or sidestepping it at the risk of allowing easier equality for Black.

With respect to Volume 1, I noted, among other things, that "[o]ne may have hoped ... that, rather than assuming all the reader's opponents will know and follow theory for 15 - 20+ moves, the book would feature more deviations from deep theory to include representative tactical themes that arise from Wojo's approach against weaker opponents." To perhaps a somewhat lesser degree I feel the same about the current volume.

I have to mirror the review of the other 4 star reviewer. IMO, this book is on par with Vol 1 as one of the best opening books because of its accessibility to class level players. I have played the fianchetto as nearly as long as I have played chess and this series has taught me more than any ONE book. I was disappointed in one aspect though. The authors mention that in Vol. 3 they will be covering the Grunfeld. This is great, but I hope that they will also be covering the symmetrical english or a response to 1.Nf3, c5. I cannot see this series being complete without some in depth work on this first move by black.

I got the book because I wanted to learn something about chess, and it had a pretty blue cover. Most of the other chess books I've seen are really bland.

You shouldn't get this book if you're a beginner at chess because you probably won't understand it. The book is intended for people who have played chess before. If you've already bought the book and you're just a beginner, just take things one move at a time and be patient. However, I don't think I'd recommend buying the book until you're at least comfortable with the names of all the pieces and the moves they make.

Also, I must add that the authors are rather handsome. I don't think I'd buy the book though just for their pictures because you can get them on Google.

I like Wojo's Weapons Volume 1. I purchased it because it was available in a Kindle edition. When viewing the description of volume 2, I have clicked on the button "tell the publisher that you would like it on Kindle". I have done this a number of times. Amazon's response to my entreaties? Removal of the button. Thanks, Amazon.
