Glad to have another recommendation that I wasn't aware of. Thank you! Also, in your other posting the Dembo book sounds quite worthwhile.

You probably already know this, but Marovic did write a companion book titled 'Dynamic Pawn Play in Chess'. I haven't read it yet, but you might want to look into that one too, if you haven't already.

Well, In my opinion, constructive criticism here is you would not want to just do pawn storms just for the sake of pawn storms. You need to understand of how to exploit the opponent's weakness, then proceed from there. It's a strategic operation. It's good to have some understanding of pawn structure dynamics.
The books below may be of help:

Pawn Power in Chess by Hans Kmoch
Winning Pawn Structures by Alexander Baburin
Pawn Structure Chess by Andrew Soltis

An excellent book is Art of Attack in Chess by Vladimir Vukovic.

If I recall correctly, Winning Pawn Structures had something about attacking the King-side and perhaps also the Queen-side.

Does anyone know of a book that covers K-side pawn storms, both attack and defence? Likewise Q-side maj/min attacks and defence. Much thanks for your help.
