Those are openings, not books.

 

I would say Moskalenko's "An Attacking Repertoire for White With 1.d4".  I do not own it, as I am not a d4 player, but I have skimmed it, and I own many of his other books (The Wonderful Winawer, The Even More Flexible French, The Fully-Fledged French) and he is an excellent writer.

Anyone a Richter-Veresov attack fan? It gives a nice co-ordinated attack, especially if black plays nf3 early. Pretty rickety if you get on the back foot though. Nakamura used to play it but got caned for it a few times. Thoughts?

the Knight on c3 strategically is bad in QP openings if it blocks the c-pawn and the only way to justify it is by attacking. As far as I know Black doesn't get mated by force so he must be better
