I present my review of the following book:

Starting Out: King's Indian Attack (Starting Out - Everyman Chess)
By John Emms, Publisher:Everyman Chess

Well Written and easy to follow introduction to the KIA. The KIA can be used against nearly any reply by black. This is one thing that makes it attractive to some beginners. John Emms takes a different approach. He recommends an opening move order that is not so universal. Downside is that if you want to learn the KIA to use as your only opening system this book may not work. However, the upside is the move order suggested by Emms is a little different and the opponent may be caught unprepared and unable to use his usual weapons against the KIA.

Feedback welcome from all

Best wishes
