The author gives detailed analysis of the options available for both sides in the French but this book is a must read for playing BLACK! Players on the white side can benefit from knowing what Black's options are in given positions. The referenced games are from the author's personal play as well other GMs' classical and modern gameplay in the French D. The games use mainline moves as the foundation for teaching the reader how to play the French.
It's great for novices, intermediate and higher players across chess world. I have become a convert of the French and this book has been most helpful, especially when playing CC. Once you learn the basic pawn structures in each variation, you can go for broke in active play confident in your analysis and planning. The book is well organized and easy to follow and the binding is heavy duty for page turning. It opens perfectly next to my analysis board. I am very impressed with the books i've purchased from the publisher "New in Chess". They have made their books for the "in use" chessplayer considering how hard I've been reading them! All in all this book is 5 star and you will not regret the purchase! "GO FRENCH & FLEXIBLE!!"
