The book presents a Black repertoire with 1. e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6, based on the most aggressive Sveshnikov lines. It also covers The Rossolimo (3 Bb5) and Alapin (3 c3).
It's written by GM Atanas Kolev (author of the hugely popular "The Sharpest Sicilian") and young Macedonian GM Trajko Nedev who acted as his sparring partner.
The material is up-to-date to April 10th 2008. The authors propose major novelties in practically all topical lines. The repertoire avoids solid, but passive variations. They are left for backup lines while the authors' recommendation goes for the most challenging options.
The presentation of the book follows the Chess Stars trademark structure. Every system is examined in a seperate part which contains three chapters: "Quick Repertoire"; "Step by Step"; "Complete Games".
