In this book, Timothy Taylor gets to grips with the Kings Indian and Grunfeld, providing White with a number of easy-to-learn and effective weapons which are specially designed tocause Black maximum discomfort. Taylor examines the typical tactical and positional ideas for both players, highlighting the tricks and pitfalls onemust look out for. A study of this book will allow the reader to battle against the Kings Indian and the Grunfeld with renewed confidence.
