McDonald: How to play against 1.e4
'It\''s not easy finding a good opening to play against 1 e4, especially if - like the majority of chess players - you don\''t have endless time available to study the latest theoretical developments. If you choose fashionable openings, it\''s often a necessity to keep pace with modern theory if you want to succeed with Black.
\r\nThis book provides a solution. Neil McDonald advocates his favourite opening - the very popular French Defence - but chooses a repertoire for Black that requires only the minimum amount of move memorization. The lines he selects are very easy to learn and play - perfect for those who are unwilling to be slaves to opening theory. But there\''s also something here for more experienced players, as McDonald goes on to offer a second repertoire based on counter-attacking lines against 3 Nc3 and 3 Nd2.
