The books contain contributions by other leading trainers and grandmasters, as well as games by pupils who have attended the courses.

The second volume explains the basic principles of the opening, discusses how to build an opening repertoire and produce opening novelties, and explores the con­nection between the opening and the later stages - the middlegame and the endgame.
