Chess Informants 120 & 121 have excellent chapters updating the 2.c3 Sicilian by GM Vassilios Kotronias, plus excellent chapters by leading Grandmasters on different phases of the game.Morozevich even has a chapter about the Advance Caro Kann with 4.h4!?.These new Informants are a great improvement over the older ones which were mostly games and analysis.

I just started to read, 'Why Lasker Matters' by Andrew Soltis.
It looks good, I'll have to read more of it....

I finally finished How to Reassess Your Chess by Silman, 4th edition.

I had read the 3rd edition back in the 90s. My overall impression is I liked the 3rd edition better. The tone of the 4th edition is a bit more chatty, and in the re-write he decided to remove the Silman Thinking Sytem which was one of my favorite parts of the 3rd edition.

I'm going to start Dan Heisman's "A Guide to Chess Improvement" as soon as I can pick it up at the library. "Silman's Complete Endgame Course" will follow that.

I am reading John Donaldson and Nikolay Minev, Akiba Rubinstein: Uncrowned King (1994). I am going through the games that have annotations.

Black's light squared Bishop traveling from c8-d7, e8, h5 could apply in some lines of the exchange variation but would appear to be very time consuming during the Winawer, Classical or Tarrasch systems.

For the French, I bought Simon Williams, Attacking chess: the French. I have coupled it with his 2 DVDs, the Killer French. Simon Williams is a dynamic player. He examines carefully what your opponent might do.
He gives the plan of attack, the weak points and what each piece is capable of doing.
As you know the light square bishop is considered weak, until he moves from c8-d7- e8- h5, where he has an interesting position. His books and DVDs are full of ingenious responses that shores you up and help you being dynamic in turn.
