The Sicilian Taimanov enjoys to be one of the greatest dynamic opening choices for Black. The resulting positions are rich in dynamic, positional and strategic play.
The authors have tried to deliver a user-friendly style for all levels of the players. Nowadays, chess players are overwhelmed with piles of information and endless databases. It is very difficult to choose "your variations" and therefore this book will surely come as a great additional help.
In addition to the basic Taimanov ideas they had to keep, they followed, in an original manner, two main concepts: "almost never play an early ..d6" (Scheveningen style) and "push ..h5 whenever you can" (Paulsen style).
At the end of the book there are some carefully selected practical exercises, enabling you to even improve your knowledge of this up-to-date Taimanov Bible.
