Originally posted by: "chaos theory" Eduard Gufeld and Oleg Stetsko,The complete Dragon, translated by Graham Burgess Batsford ltd London. is a very good book on the Sicilian dragon.
I did a search for this one and found one ( new ) at Amazon.com but that one was priced $132.00 ! https://www.amazon.com/The-Complete-Dragon-Eduard-Gufeld/dp/187947963X Is that the real new-prize or did they make a mistake?
Thu May 5 2011 12:45AM | MsgID: 14323767 I just bought "The New Sicilian Dragon" and it is a great book, full of illustrative games and it is well explaned. It is not the 'old way' of playing the Sicilian Dragon, but the Dragadorf Sicilian. The Dragadorf is some kind of mix between the Dragon and the Najdorf. Recommended!

Sun Apr 24 2011 12:14AM | MsgID: 14290641 Funny, I have Chess Openings for White Explained, so this one could fit well with that one. Still, maybe there is a book about the 'normal' Dragon, which I prefer slightly...

Sat Apr 23 2011 9:04PM | MsgID: 14290026 I am looking for a book about the Sicilian Dragon. I know about an old book from David Levy ( about 30 years old ), but that is not what I am looking for, because it is a very out-dated book.
So what is a good, recent book about the Dragon, preferrably with a lot of illustrated games?
