Although this is a very informative book, with basic plans for openings, it is extremely annoying to read. This is because they use two different notations seemingly randomly. For example, in one place the notation Qd8-d1 is used while in another they will write Qd1 for the same move. Before Volume 2 is published, this one needs serious editing.
