I wouldn't say that MCO 15 has no typos. I found one the very first time I opened the book.

On page 403
1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7
column 25 continues 5.Bg5 (I think move 4 should be 4.Nf3)

A post on the internet mentioned this one on page 151
1. e4 e5 2. d4 cxd4 is not a legal move.

If you are looking for a book that explains the reasons behind the opening moves rather than just listing them, I would recommend:

Ideas Behind the Chess Openings by Reuben Fine

Fundamental Chess Openings by Paul van der Sterren

MCO 15 is excellent and very up to date with no typos (a miracle) this time.Also NCO (Nunns Chess Openings) written by 3 of Englands most gifted Grandmasters, is filled with original TNs (theoretical novelties) as well as every main line.If your new to chess and need the most comprehensive opening book ever written, the greatest is Chess Openings Theory and Practice by Horowitz.It came out in the early 1960s however so the main lines may not be fully up to date, but the "idea variations" are timeless and give you the plans and objectives of every opening.A real classic.good luck.
