The book is co-authored by Cyrus Lakdawala and Keaton Kiewra and takes a teacher/student format. The “student” Keaton Kiewra is a very strong international master with two grandmaster norms. He normally specialises in razor-sharp defences such as the Sicilian Dragon and King’s Indian. Now he wants to broaden his style and develop his skills at handling more sedate positions. His “teacher” is Cyrus Lakdawala, an extremely experienced player, coach and author, who guides Keaton along the learning path.
