Item description for Creative Chess Opening Preparation by Viacheslav Eingorn...
Grandmaster Eingorn is an chess opening trendsetter. Throughout his career, he has introduced many novel concepts in the openings, and some of the systems he has introduced have gone on to become absolute main lines, such as the Rb1 Exchange Grnfeld. Here he explains the methods by which he prepares his openings and works out new systems from scratch, and how readers can do the same. The broad topics he discusses include Experiments in the Opening, Disturbing the Equilibrium, Strategic Planning, and Opening Formations. He follows this up with a section of examples from modern practice, and theoretical articles on several of the opening lines that he has pioneered, taking us through the creative process, and the highs and lows of the practical testing and refinement of the ideas.

Reviews - What do customers think about Creative Chess Opening Preparation?
have chess books gotten really good lately, or is it me? Oct 26, 2006
someone i read recently, maybe rowson in a column, points out that the way people use the word 'theory' and 'theoretical' in chess has almost the opposite meaning that it has in every other academic field. what chessplayers mean by theory is actually more like "recorded practice." this makes sense to me, and really what i think the chess community is trying to convey by using the word theory is more like "difficult" or "beyond the capacities of undedicated people." my point in bringing this up is that eingorn's book is what should really be called theory. (don't let that scare you off, it's a beautiful, thoughtful, exciting book, and not insanely difficult.) it tackles the broader ideas in opening theory from a historical and philosophical perspective (i want to say sociologic as well, but that's perhaps ridiculous?), the way openings develop and what causes this. the games are nicely annotated and instructive, but the real strength is the clarity with which eingorn sees the big picture of chess. i loved watson's books and rowson's; this one is on the same level.
