Signed copies are available.

This repertoire of easy to learn openings, based on Garry Kasparov and Magnus Carlsen’s move 1 d4, which offers openings with a modern twist. Each one has simple principles that allow White to play just about the same moves against the Grunfeld, King’s Indian, and Nimzo-Indian Defense. There are also modern systems to repel the Dutch, Benoni, and even offbeat lines such as the Englund Gambit. Nothing is left out: the tricks and traps in the opening for both sides; the basic plan and strategy using entertaining games; and how to play the middlegame by following easy plans.
