Kevin Spraggett wrote a book called Starting Out: The Sicilian Dragon for Everyman Chess, pfren thought you read it lol
The book is by IM Andy Martin, I believe.
I was referring to GM Spraggett's blog, where he claims that 9...Bxg4 is a good move (no real analysis, though).
David Vigorito has done one on the Dragon for the Chess Development series by Everyman - it focuses on defending against the Yugoslav attack.
I do have Vigorito's book. He is actually offering a repertoire for Black, not a complete Yugoslav Attack survey, and on this line he hays nothing more than 11.Nb3 "and white is better".
This game is fascinating. White is totally winning until move 27, when he allows Black a spectacular tactic.
wow.. this is very tough for black!!
I understood "the bind" was'nt suppose to be good against the Accelerated Dragon??
it is true that bxg4 probably is losing at move 27 in your game but the game also points out that white has to go on the defensive and it is easy to mess up so it is a good practical sacrifice
Hear the dragon roar and it echo throuought White's worst nightmare.

At high level, the yugoslav, well played, kills the dragon and, the best possible for the dragon player is to draw.But, if the dragon player has higher rating than he could have a good advantage using all the sharpness in his favor...
i like the hyper-accelerated dragon its rich with tactics
8...Nxe4 is hardly best. The game may be objectively equal after 9.Nxe4 d5 10.Nxc6 bc6 11.Bd3 de4 12.Bxe4, but it's easier to play as white.
Black should simply be satisfied by the fact white unprovokedly castled short, and play 8...d6 with a good game. So yes, 8.Bb3 is more accurate, when 8...a5!? is interesting (and messy).
Black should play 7...Qa5 to "force" white castling short.
