    The book of Gennady Sosonko is devoted to the fate of the outstanding chess player David Ionovich Bronshtein. Bronstein's peak occurred in the middle of the last century, when he challenged Botvinnik himself and almost overpowered him, but this "almost" inflicted him a wound that never healed until the end of his life. The author has repeatedly met and talked with Bronstein, and these conversations have not only recreated the thoughts and character of one of the most original grandmasters of the past, but they also bring us back to times that are not simply found in world history. Not being a biography in the classical sense of the word, Sosonko's book, which is read in one breath, goes beyond the limits of the hero's biography, posing eternal questions, to which there is no unambiguous answer.

    A new book (in two volumes) the famous theorist Yevgeny Sveshnikov wrote in collaboration with international master Vladimir Sveshnikov. The book offers an economical and practical repertoire for fast chess and blitz. The authors have sharply narrowed the circle of their debuts, so that readers can learn the options as deeply as possible and can force their opponents to solve specific problems from the first moves. In the second volume, the debut repertoire is proposed for whites after the most aggressive move - 1.e4! The authors analyze in detail four main Black answers - 1 ... e5, 1 ... c5, 1 ... e6 and 1 ... c6. The principle of choosing the debut variants is exactly the same as in the first volume: to sharply cut down on the opponent the choice of possible extensions, and to study his "own" lines very deeply. That is why, for example, among all open debuts, the authors chose the Viennese party: it comparatively rarely occurs in practice and at the same time requires black specific knowledge. The book is addressed to chess lovers, but it will be interesting for professionals, there are many original analyzes and novelties in it.

    A new book by the international grandmaster, the well-known analyst and trainer Alexei Bezgodov, is devoted to the acute system 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.f3 !? In most caro-cannian systems, Black does not have problems with the development of the white-field elephant, but here they find themselves in an unusual situation - the elephant c8 is difficult to enter into the game. Black is deprived of the concept: since there is nowhere to put an elephant, one has to walk around with something else, and often begin to play unreasonably sharply. On the other hand, if they delay with the creation of counterplay, then the subordinate press is at risk. The degree of analytical exhaustion of "extreme Karo-Kann" (the title is given by the author of the monograph) is negligible in comparison with other game systems for whites, independent play often begins with the first moves. The author gives a large number of original analyzes and amplifications for both sides.
