This book provides everything you need to know in order to play the Alekhine with confidence.… (more)

This book is certainly among the better opening surveys I've read. Though the sections on the modern line (4 Nf3) get a little tedious, understanding the underlying strategies developed by Kengis and Larsen are essential to playing this defense against a prepared e4 player. As soon as the book departs from these difficult responses Taylor lightens up considerably. I even laughed out loud a few times. He's a great writer to spend time with and this book is a solid introduction to a daring defense. ( )
