Through the use of complete games, both classic and modern and some repertoire suggestions Martin paints a comprehensive picture of the current state of play and looks towards the future.
In the new, expanded 2nd edition there are many recent clashes and some remarkable modern ideas are discussed. The Kings Indian is as uncompromising and resilient as ever!

I now have both editions of this introductory DVD featuring IM Andrew Martin. Martin is one of the more popular of Chessbase's DVD presenters, both because of his optimistic outlook and his sense of humor. I thought that this 2nd edition would be more than just the older version with some new games added on, but that is what Chessbase has put forth. Martin makes the DVD worth buying, but if you have neither of ABC of the King's Indian DVD's, purchase the second one so you don't end up with a lot of duplicate material.
