The scotch game is a fantastic opening with many tactical surprises. It is very dangerous for black not be be prepared and Kasparov killed a lot of people with this opening. John Emms reviews the most important lines and the typical ideas. This book is excellent for <2000 ELO, and it covers all possible pawn structures and deviations.

I bought this book after it was recommended by Abby Marshall in her column on Chess Café. As the book shows the Scotch can be a very sharp, tactical opening with even chances for both sides. John Emms presents all the variations in an easy to read and entertaining fashion. He admits that "... the vast majority of my experience comes from playing the black side", but don't let that put you off, as he shows no bias to either side. If you are < 2000 Elo and want a good introduction to this opening, I think that you will find this book the best choice.
