Experienced grandmaster Sergey Kasparov presents a surprising way to combat The Sicilian Defence, Black’s most popular choice against 1.e4. White unbalances the position of his opponent right from the start, gains space and prepares to steamroll his way to victory. This repertoire is complete and contains many new ideas and improvements on existing opening theory. Kasparov writes lively, personal and highly instructive prose, and includes many exercises to test the amateur reader.

Editorial Reviews
The book is light and easy-going. The author emphasizes the pragmatic nature of the proposed repertoire: less to learn, avoiding 'pet lines', strategically sound, and so on. An original book. (Grandmaster Glenn Flear Diplo: Towards more inclusive and effective diplomacy)

The idea behind this: avoid theoretical battles and surprise your opponent. Furthermore, after playing 5.f3 it is almost impossible to end up in a position that is not solid.
(Martin Rieger Schachwelt)

A decent alternative to surprise a well-armed opponent. The book as a whole is enthusiastically written and there are many new ideas.
(Carsten Hansen

The author is not related to Garry but he is a fine writer. There are plenty of games demonstrating how White can extract a slight edge against popular lines. A nice Sicilian repertoire.

(Gary Lane, International Master CHESS Magazine)

Steamrolling the Sicilian has not, of course, refuted the Sicilian, because that is impossible, but the typical Black counter-play is being effectively neutralized. (Johan Hut Noord-Hollands Dagblad)

An excellent overview of an interesting variation.
(Joe Petrolito Australasian Chess Magazine)

I like this book a lot. It is a hefty tome full of material that we can learn from, also in 2014.
(Richard Vedder, FIDE Master, Netherlands
