The Sicilian Defense, 1.e4 c5, is one of the most popular chess openings. In this book several chess grandmasters present state-of-the-art analysis of lines where White meets the Sicilian by avoiding the Open variations.

The editors, 2007 British Champion Jacob Aagaard and three-time Scottish Champion John Shaw, have recruited a line-up of strong grandmasters to share their expert opinions both on how to play the Sicilian Defense and how to play against it.

Jacob Aagaard is a grandmaster and former British Chess Champion, who has won the Guardian, ECF and ChessCafe book of the year awards, as well as many international tournaments. John Shaw is a grandmaster and three-time Scottish Chess Champion.

“Let’s jump to the point: I don’t know how any Sicilian player worth his salt (from 1500 to grandmaster) can do without this book!”

IM Jeremy Silman


“Another first-class product from Quality Chess. Serious players who play or face the Sicilian will find a great deal of useful information here, well organized and well explained.”
