Yuan Zhou is a popular teacher and writer. He starts with a fairly short explanation of the ideas behind the Chinese opening, then illustrates these with examples from ten recent games showing the development of the early fighting. The second half of the book merely contains full game records of all games mentioned, which doesn’t seem to add much to one’s understanding of the Chinese.
