Yes, my 25th book has recently been published. (Actually, it was published on Chess Studio a couple of months ago.) The timing - just before Christmas - is deliberate, but coinciding with a world championship match was accidental.
This is the most elementary book I have written for some years, but is by no means a babyish book. It should be useful for players up to decent club standard too. Choosing good clear examples was a big task, and avoiding excessively complex language was a challenge. I also wanted to write a book that presented a modern view of opening play, rather than the inflexible and unrealistic "rule-based" approach that you tend to find in old books (even though it has never accurately represented how good players handle this phase of the game). This runs the risk of confusing readers, but should lead to better opening play.
