This ambitious book aims to arm you with a complete repertoire against 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3. It is based on the Najdorf system with Black employing the ...e5 approach against most major choices of White. The only exception is the open fianchetto variation 6 g3, where 6...e6 is the main line.

Chapters about the English Attack 6 Be3 and the Classical 6 Be2 as well as 6 a4 are written by grandmaster Atanas Kolev. He has played many times for Bulgarian Olympic team. He also worked as a coach of Bulgarian women's team.

The rest of the book is a work of grandmaster Kiril Georgiev. He has been for 20 years in the chess elite with rating above 2650. He participated in 12 Olympiads, mostly as Bulgarian first board. In 2006 he took the bronze at the European championship.

The book follows the structure of another Chess Stars publication - The Safest Sicilian. Every system is examined in a separate part which contains three chapters:

- While "Quick Repertoire" provides only vital information, that you need to start playing the variation,
- "Step by Step" is the reference chapter with all branches covered in depth, - The "Complete Games" chapters include altogether 50 commented games which display typical ideas or pawn structures.

You'll find a lot of original analysis on the most critical positions of the Najdorf. The material is up-to-date to February 10, 2007.

Including a lot of high-level advise by Super GM Kiril Georgiev: this is currently the best and most up-to-date book on the most popular of defences, the Sicilian Najdorf!
