Item description for The Sicilian Sozin by Mikhail Goluben...

The Sozin Attack is White's most overtly aggressive counter to the Sicilian. White puts his bishop on c4 and often follows up with direct play against the black king. Unless Black defends with the utmost precision, the bishop's influence often fuels a deadly attack leading to a cascade of sacrifices and a brutal king hunt. The Sozin set-up can be employed against the Classical Sicilian, the Najdorf, and even the Scheveningen. Mikhail Golubev is a young grandmaster who has employed the Sozin with devastating effect throughout the whole of his adult chess career. Here he explains how White carries out that attack in its various forms (including some relatively positional lines), and presents in detail the theory of all its variations, including the razor-sharp Velimirovic Attack.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sicilian Sozin?

Fischer's Ghost!  Jun 1, 2008
This book is the best guide to the Fischer-Sozin Attack that you will find anywhere, and it is the most up-to-date. You will be well equipped to tackle the Najdorf Sicilian after reading this book.

Also, if you plan to play the Velimirovic Attack against classical variations of the the Sicilian, this book is again an excellent guide from a leading GM proponent of the system.
Great book, for 2300+  Feb 20, 2002
I think this book is a fruit of combination between human intelligence and computer database. The auther gives profound analysis on every possible line of sozin and velimirovich attack, and you'll find many interesting ideas hidden in the GM games. The assessment of positons and lines is very objective, which distinguishes this one from "winning with xx" books, where authers don't mind giving wrong assessment on purpose.
In short, this book is a MUST if you are a FIDE titled player and play sicilian with either color. On the other hand, if you just want to grasp the general idea of Bc4 lines, you may be embarrassed, because the author tends to give only concrete lines.
