    Its an e4 opening for white

    I suggest that if you buy this book, it should be that you are an e4 opening player. The author tells the reader that if you want calculated risk at you expense to play against masters, this book is not recommended for master tournaments, it is possible that you can used it in non-master tournaments and can easily make your weak opponents lose the game instantly but its risky against good players. If you are good at attacking and analysing complicated positions, this book is for you.
