Chess Fans have said: The historical introduction let us know the ideas behind virtually every move Black makes in the Najdorf English Attack. This made it largely unnecessary to give a bunch of variations (we could produce ourselves). A wonderful way to educate someone quickly on an opening, even one as complex as this variation.
