    What's wrong with pawn to e4?

    • Nothing - maybe it's a short book?

    • Opening theory can be over twenty moves deep (each side). This book probably covers openings up to around the tenth move and explains the ideas behind them and the ensuing strategies.

    • There's nothing wrong with it. Black has 20 possible moves in reply (most popular are c5 and e5), and that's not including offering a draw or resigning.

      But c5 and e5 are distinctly different games.

    Does this cover the legendary Wooden Shield move?

      Yeah! This book also teaches you the infamous Lobster Pincer and avoiding losing in 6 moves

  • The author is not a titled player (not a master) but merely an enthusiast, which is probably why this is free. It could still be well-written and accurate, but you won't be getting any original thoughts or information.

    • Maybe because it is geared towards beginners.
