Overview

Do you need a well-deserved break from your normal chess openings? Are you tired of constantly having to keep up with modern chess theory? Or perhaps you simply wish to try out something new and exciting, but cannot decide between the embarrassment of choices available? Look no further for the answer!
In Dangerous Weapons: The French, International Master John Watson takes a revolutionary look at one of the most famous and widely-played chess openings: the French Defence. Instead of travelling down well-trodden and analyzed paths, Watson concentrates on fresh or little-explored variations of the French, selecting a wealth of ‘dangerous’ options for both White and Black. A study of this book will leave the reader confident and fully-armed, and his or her opponents running for cover!
Dangerous Weapons is a brand-new series of opening books which supply the reader with an abundance of hard-hitting ideas to revitalize his or her opening repertoire. Many of the carefully chosen weapons are innovative, visually shocking, incredibly tricky, or have been unfairly discarded; they are guaranteed to throw even your most experienced opponent off balance.

*The French Defence in a whole new light
*Packed with original ideas and analysis
*Ideal for ambitious and adventurous players

    Not For Beginners

    Its not for beginners who want to know the whole French Defense. Its more of an opening Theory for French opening lovers. Its a good book but you must have experience first inorder to understand it.
