New: The Four Knights Game

We have just received from our printers: The Four Knights Game. The Four Knights Game is one of the oldest chess openings and continues to be a popular choice among beginners, club players and grandmasters. Russian International Master Andrey Obodchuk has written a repertoire book for white players based on the Spanish Four Knights variation (starting with 4.Bb5). Covering a range of positional themes as well as sharp amazing adventures, Obodchuk has created an easy-to-handle toolbox for club and Internet chess players. Create attacks from seemingly peaceful positions!

Looks like a preschool child is still designing book covers for New in Chess. Somebody please take away their crayons and put away the crayola box when designing their absurdly colorful high-contrast book covers. If i wanted to taste the rainbow i would open a bag of skittles. I mean seriously, look at all their recent covers. Why not pick colors that actually go together instead of clash?!? No way i am carrying that crap around, unless i want to walk a cross-walk and make sure the traffic sees me. Before you criticize my comment as "superficial", have a look for yourself at Sveshnikov's c3-sicilian and Naroditsky's Positional Chess. What on earth is going on?!?!??

IMHO the cover for The Four Knights Game looks pretty cool.
I mean lively and not dull. This is exactly what I like.

Pity this is a repertoire book for white, I was hoping a recent book that gives black's defence against all of white's options as I transpose to it from the Alekhine: 1.e5 Nf6 2. Nc3 e5 3. Nf6 Nc6
