5.0 out of 5 stars sniper vol. 2, October 1, 2013
A good follow-up to Sniper vol. 1! The solution to White's classic two pawn advance (1.e4 2.d4) with the Schmidt Benoni is quite sound. Moreover, GM Henley's demonstration of Carlson's "secret weapon" against the English Opening is a response most White players would not expect.
I have found the whole Sniper complex and underlying philosophy of dynamic counter-play really allowed me to win a very high percentage of games with the black pieces.

The combination of GM Henley's annotations of each move and GM Karpov's personal notes as to why each move was played are a first class learning experience from two great chess players!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crushing White: The Dzindzi Indian! An Easy to Learn Chess Opening & Strategy Volume 2, November 11, 2011
"Crushing White" Vol. 2 is an informative move-by-move tactical demonstration on how to play against 1.d4. For example: GM Henley shows you how to combat and win after White's most lethal attack combination: 6.e4 followed by 7.h4! I had been losing time trying to decide upon the best response. Vol. 2 not only shows the correct move order but is an easy to read analysis of a GM's approach to chess problem solving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Win Like Kasparov, December 3, 2010
The benefit of the book is the way GM Henley simplifies Garry Kasparov's chess playing strategies and tactics. The use of diagrams on the board during a middlegame makes clear what is the GM's thought process.
Mr. Henley's discussion of Kasparov's moves is in language that is easy to understand by the casual player. Also, his use of various board positions and moves to highlight chess concepts and terminologies, which have long confused most people, goes a long way to making the game an adventure!
