From the Back Cover
Alekhine's Defence is a sharp and often underrated counter to 1 e4. Black immediately challenges the white e-pawn and tries to lure White into constructing a big central position. Black's hope is that White's central installations will become unweildy and vulnerable to a middlegame counter-attack. However, Alekhine enthusiasts must always be careful - get it wrong and White will come crashing through! Whether you want to play the Alekhine, or want to know what to do against it as White, this book will be an essential addition to your armory. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 160 pages, diagrams)

This book cannot really be used as a reference book, but rather as an introduction to the opening. Many lines get a very superficial treatment. But as an introduction the book does rather a good job, presenting material on all lines for both sides.
There is nothing really special in this book, but it is a good work that will be quite adequate for anyone starting out on this opening or playing against it. And at the time of writing (2003) this is the most recent book on this opening, which is relevant for some sharp lines.
