The Najdorf in Black and White

In many ways, the Najdorf Sicilian is the ideal defense against 1.e4 - aggressive and leading to creative and exciting play, allowing Black to play for a win and yet unquestionably sound. Despite the Najdorf's great popularity and reputation as a theoretical labyrinth, Bryan Smith believes it is possible to play it "by the light of nature," with experience providing a guide. The twenty-nine annotated games in this book were carefully selected for their instructional value, their theoretical relevance, and - most of all - their aesthetic appeal.
