The first one-volume book that covers all variations

The English Opening (1.c4) is a popular choice at both club and master level, because it is a chess opening that suits all styles. Elite players as diverse as Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana and Vishy Anand include it in their repertoire. As White you can play aggressively or opt for a more strategic approach, depending on what kind of middlegame positions you are looking for.

For a club player who wants to reap the benefits of this multipurpose opening, understanding is much more important than deep theoretical knowledge. The Full English Opening teaches the fundamentals and is the first one-volume book that covers all major variations.

Carsten Hansen dedicates special attention to the transition into the early middlegame. You will learn how to identify specific plans, determine your strategic goals and find positional and tactical targets.

Supported by examples and exercises, you will be able to enjoy the greatest asset of the English Opening: its versatility. It will serve you well in any mood, against any type of opponent, in any tournament situation.

Carsten Hansen is a Danish FIDE Master and FIDE Trainer and an acclaimed author. He has written extensively on the English Opening and has a lifetime of experience with the opening.
