about

It's not easy finding a good opening to play against 1 e4, especially if you don't have endless time available to study the latest theoretical developments. If you choose fashionable openings, it's often a necessity to keep pace with modern theory if you want to succeed with Black. This book provides a solution. Neil McDonald advocates his favourite opening - the very popular French Defence - but chooses a repertoire for Black that requires only the minimum amount of move memorization. The lines he selects are very easy to learn and play - perfect for those who are unwilling to be slaves to opening theory. But there's also something here for more experienced players, as McDonald goes on to offer a second repertoire based on counter-attacking lines against 3 Nc3 and 3 Nd2. *An easy-to-learn defence against 1 e4*Provides solutions to all of White's options*Written by a world-renowned expert on the French*Ideal for improvers, club players and tournament players
English Grandmaster Neil McDonald is an experienced and successful player and a talented chess writer who has many outstanding works to his name.

Editorial Reviews

"Once again I would like to say how much I like McDonald as an author. He gets to the meat of the subject and shares his thoughts with the reader. As with any book there are some details that are left for the reader to work out, but the amount of valuable information that is shared far outweighs that."- NM Bill McGeary, Chessville.com
