If you are looking for a book on the 2...Nf6 Scandinavian, this is not it, as 2...Qxd5 steals the lion's share of the attention. The 60 pages devoted to the principal lines of 2...Nf6 is simply inadequate. Underscoring the fact that 2...Nf6 plays second fiddle, the author's attention to general overall observations (and how welcomed a small offering of prose can be in efforts of this sort) and unusual early move variants is almost exclusively focussed on 2...Qxd5. The author also presumes that every opponent will know the first dozen moves or so of theory for every 2...Nf6 line, and information to aid Black in punishing weaker White responses is lacking. Having said all that, I'm not aware of much in the way of satisfying alternatives. There is a monograph on the Portuguese Variation, but there are a lot of other lines, including reasonably intuitive lines, throughout the 2...Nf6 tree that appear to have escaped being the subject of any significant inquiry in Emms' book or elsewhere.

John Emms has proven time and time to be a good author .can't go wrong with his books

Great book! and having the games available on the publisher's website was a nice touch.

One (minor) quibble was with the font used by Everyman for game deviations. The 'a' can be easily mixed up with the 'e' by those of us with failing eyesight; a victory for style over functionality.

I think this is the chess book to get if you want the Scandinavian to be your main defence against 1 e4. And this is indeed my main defence, so much so that I feel I could almost write a book on "My Life as a Scandinavian."

For the record, I play and recommend the following lines for Black:

1 e4 d5 2 ed Nf6 3 c4 e6 (the Icelandic Gambit) 4 de (4 d4 ed 5 Nc3 Bb4) Be6 5 Nf3 (5 d4 Bb4+ 6 Bd2 Bd2+) Qe7 6 Qe2 Nc6 7 d4 Bg4

1 e4 d5 2 ed Nf6 3 Bb5+ Bd7 4 Bc4 Bg4 5 f3 Bf5 6 Nc3 Nbd7

1 e4 d5 2 ed Nf6 3 Nc3 Nd5 4 Bc4 Nb6 5 Bb3 Nc6 6 Nf3 e5

1 e4 d5 2 ed Nf6 3 d4 Nd5 4 c4 Nb6 5 Nf3 Bg4 6 Be2 (6 c5 N6d7) Nc6

1 e4 d5 2 Nc3 de 3 Ne4 Bf5

1 e4 d5 2 e5 c5

1 e4 d5 2 d4 (Blackmar Gambit) de 3 Nc3 Nf6

1 e4 d5 2 Nf3 (trying for a Budapest Reversed?) de 3 Ng5 Bf5 4 Bc4 e6 5 Nc3 Nf6

Still, if you want to rely on this opening for Black, you ought to read some other books as well. Here are a few I recommend:

Skandinavisch und Jugoslawisch (Schwartz, 1969)
The Chess Opening for You (Evans, 1975)
Center Counter (Grefe and Silman, 1983)
Winning With the Scandinavian (Harman and Taulbut, 1993)

You probably ought to look at the recent book, "The Scandinavian Defence" by Plaskett too.

In any case, I recommend the present book by Emms. It contains 72 analyzed games, 47 of which are from 1998 or later. It definitely presents a modern assessment of this defence.

John Emms' second edition of the Scandinavian is an expanded version of the first edition,organized in the same way.

As is normal for the Everyman format, lines are presented as complete games,with a variation index at chapter's end.Personally I like this format.

Chapters have (in my opinion) a useful introduction, plus again in my opinion Emms is objective about results.

In this edition an expanded coverage of the Panov Attack is included, thus filling a gap from the first edition.

In gneral I would say 2...Qxd5 gets more attention than 2...Nf6,and in 2...Qxd5 only 3...Qa5 is paid much attention to as an answer to 3.Nc3.

My only reason for not awarding 5 stars is I wish for a better treatment of transpositions in the main line. For example,1.e4,d5 2.exd5,Qxd5 3. Nc3,Qa5 4.d4,Nf6 5.Nf3,c6 6.Bc4,Bf5 is "main line",according to Emms, and in the above 5...Bg4 is labeled inferior. {chapter 3). But also (game 16) in the above 6...Bg4 is labeled "seems to give Bk an inferior version of the mainline",altho perhaps justified now that White will not fianchetto his KB.Finally,in chapter 4 after 1.e4,d5 2.exd5,Qxd5 3.Nc3,Qa5 4.Nf3,Nf6 5.Bc4 the move 5...Bg4 (game 28) is described as the suspected "best answer".Of course here 6.d4 would transpose the best answer to the inferior version. As a result one is left in doubt regarding Bk's QB development. (or at least I am).Or in general the move order choices in the first half dozen moves of the 2...Qxd5 line.

Still, overall I find the book well-written and a very good reference for the Scandinavian.

I would give the content of this book 3 stars, but since it's much better than Plaskett's effort on the same topic, I give it 4.
Too much emphasis on variations and move orders (sometimes the author will have you flipping pages and you can get lost in the maze of transpositions).
Also, I have the impression the book is written from white's point of view. This is especially visible in the short section on the Qd6 variation, where the author shows how black can quickly get into trouble without providing any improvements.
Be aware also that the book is centered around the Qa5 and Nf6 main lines, with only a few pages devoted to Qd6. So if you only play the Qd6 line, there's very little here for you.
