Tiger's Modern from 2005 is a modern classic, but has fallen out of date. Instead of writing a typical second edition, Swedish grandmaster Tiger Hillarp Persson has chosen to write a new book on the same topic, building on the original framework, re-analyzing every line, and adding over forty new illustrative games to his unique interpretation of the Modern Defense. The Modern Tiger offers a complete repertoire against 1.e4, as well as against 1.d4 when White continues with c4 and e4. For added flexibility, both a Modern line and a Pirc line are given against the critical Austrian Attack.
Swedish chess grandmaster Tiger Hillarp Persson is a Modern aficionado who is widely admired for his creative style and original ideas.
