The best thing about it are the examples Marovic gives. He mixes games from the classics (Capablanca, Alekhine, Rubinstein and others)with present days great players, like
Kramnik, Shirov, Fischer, Karpov and Kasparov.
Therefore the reader can see the treatments of the same structures over a period of a century.
The book, as always with the subject, is divides by themes, like Isolated Pawns, Hanging Pawns and so on.
After this one I bought all the other from the same author, where he uses the same method, of mixing classics and contemporary games.
A great book for all club players.
One Minus with this book, is that the author and Gambitbooks could have used more diagrams for each game. You must always use the board when going through this book. With more diagrams describing the most interesting position for the pawn subject, the book would become more readable.
