 The 'Chess Stars Openings' series present an entirely new approach to the study of chess openings which can provoke the interest of chess players of all levels.

From the Introduction:

"Dear readers,
You are holding in your hands volume seven of our series “Opening
for White according to Anand – 1.e4”, in which we have analyzed
one of the most popular variations of the French Defence – the
Winawer system (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4).

... French Defence is a quite interesting and unique opening in which both opponents must solve difficult problems right after the very beginning of the game and most of these problems are characteristic only for that particular opening. Of course, it is absolutely necessary to know thoroughly the opening theory, but the all-round understanding of the arising pawn-structures and the complex strategy of that opening should combine with an extensive practical experience.

 ... I hope the book will enrich your understanding of the French Defence too, because that opening has a special place in contemporary chess and quite deservedly so."

A.Khalifman 14th World Chess Champion
