He speaks to all club players in a language we can all understand, Aaron Summerscale recommends this book in the Forward and this book is more up to date. hope this helps you. But in the end it's your decisions whether you buy Aaron Summerscale book "A killer chess opening Repertoire"
I have both "Zuke em" and "the moment of Zuke" by Rudel. Zuke em, explains the ins and out of the Colle-Zukertort, in every detail imaginable. David Rudel takes you by the hand in the problems of the game, FIRST. So you are aware of them. Then he takes you to what makes the Colle-Zukertort tick. I've only started, but my impression as a beginner intermediate (I've been that for years!) is that through his instructions, you get tactics that can be used in other openings and circumstances. I know that people say,"learn tactics first". Well, it is good but a little abstract; after a while, you get an indigestion of playing CT-Art! Instead, David Rudel, in his books, show you what you meet and how to meet it, with which tactics.
There are new series for people like me (Non grandmasters) who are keen to learn.
David Rudel is one who explains well. Simon Williams has a DVD on "the Killer Dutch" (in reply to 1.d4) he is quite forthright too in his explanations, and shows why a move can be played an why you should avoid other moves (When your opponent plays e4, you meet it with e5. If e5 is impossible, play f4 ... with a stunning disabling attack!).
the last book I want to mention, as really instructive is "Pirc Alert" by Lev Alburt and Alex Chernin. The three works can constitute a repertoire for White and Black, meeting 1.e4 and 1.d4, or originating your own 1.d4 with very interesting games.. They are exciting to read or follow and really boost your knowledge with plenty of tactics, explained in a radical, new, intelligent and enthusiastic way - non dry, still with great expertise for humans, rather than computer Houdini aided recovery!. Worth a look.

Hi, The book you mentioned (New Enlarged Edition) of the "A killer chess opening Repertoire" by Aaron Summerscale. It contains the Barry attack, 150 attack , Colle-Zukertort System. A beating the anti Colle systems, Anti Benoni,Anti Dutch, and Classical Queen's Indian. I believe this book is aimed at higher graded club players to 2200 ELO players.You would be better of getting Kuke-Emm "The Colle-Zukertort Revolutionized, by David Rudel.
