I honestly think practicing tactics and watching chess.com video courses are much more helpful learning openings to middlegames instead of books.

yea true depending on your opening (like for example lets say you play something that nobody knows then more chance of they blundering)

I'm not 1700, but my theory alone is at least 1900. I got a good book for this. Its called Chess Openings for White, winning with 1.e4

I got a lot of theory, and this is one of my main sources.

Speaking of Chessable, there's this book called 1001 tactics for beginners. It took me from 500-600 USCF to 1100 in 2 months

well that is pretty easy because you need to know tactics if you want to get o 1500 at least (if you know tactics pretty easy to get to 1200)

Middle game books? I just buy opening books that bring entire games with those openings.
