The Complete HedgehogWe have just received from our friends at Mongoose Press in Massachusetts: The Complete Hedgehog, Volume 1.

The Hedgehog is a thoroughly modern defense where concepts and understanding are more important than plain memorization. It can be played against e4, d4 or c4 and is a respected weapon in Black's armory.

Tal, Larsen, Karpov and Kasparov, have played this opening. Sergey Shipov draws on decades of experience playing this defense, andhas written much more than a simple opening manual full of variations.

Shipov not only explains strategic themes, typical formations and move-order subtleties, along the way he also teaches one of the most important skills in chess: how to evaluate a position.

Garry Kasparov says about The Complete Hedgehog: "I highly recommend this book because it investigates strategic concepts instead of being limited to mere reactions."

Please have a look at this brilliant book.
