This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.
The Sicilian Dragon is a famous chess opening and is popular with players of all levels. The main lines often lead to ultra-sharp positions in which both players attack their opponent's king. Seemingly inconsequential mistakes may punished severely, and a good knowledge of the theory and strategies is absolutely vital for success. In this book, FIDE Master Carsten Hansen invites you to join him in studying the Sicilian Dragon and its many variations. Using illustrative games, he explains the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about successfully playing the Sicilian Dragon.
Eliminate all doubt about your ability to learn any chess opening now. The best chess openings all adhere to sound opening principles, and the Sicilian Dragon is no exception.
In fact, if you are a beginner, you will likely do a better job learning the more complicated openings than an intermediate or higher-rated player. The best way to learn anything is with a beginner's mind; as a beginner, you already have one.
