GM Boris Alterman founded the Shevah-Mofet Chess Academy in Israel. Alterman is a product of the Botvinnik-Kasparov chess school and he also helped to develop the Deep Junior program which famously drew a match with Kasparov and defeated both Radjabov and Deep Fritz.
"Alterman organizes his material around 58 model games that are carefully annotated with plenty of explanatory prose. This book is laid out in a way that makes it easy to learn from with plenty of diagrams and assessments to tie the material together. Players below 2300 will find everything they need to learn how to play these openings successfully at their level."
