An opening book based only on miniatures? Perhaps it sounds odd at first, but it works well in the sharp Najdorf. As usual Carsten's theoretical coverage is thorough, and the books are not repertoire based but gives a full examination of these topical openings. Is it limiting only to show miniatures? Maybe, but one somehow get the purified version of a successful strategy, when the games are not complex battles, but a slam-dunk!" - Grandmaster Peter Heine Nielsen, Coach & Second to World Champion Magnus Carlsen.

The Najdorf Sicilian, which arises after 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 a6 has been and continues to be a tremendously popular opening at all levels. It is sharp, unbalanced, with many theory-laden lines - and fun. The main lines after 6 Bg5 e6 7 f4 are steeped in theory, making them tricky to play, especially for players with limited time to study.
