I don't have Wells' book, but I have "Starting out: The Scotch Game" by John Emms (Everyman Chess) and "The Scotch Game Explained" by Gary Lane, which were both published in 2005

I don't have Wells' book, but I have "Starting out: The Scotch Game" by John Emms (Everyman Chess) and "The Scotch Game Explained" by Gary Lane, which were both published in 2005. Both are good, although I am surprised how much space is given over in both to the the Scotch 4 Knights variation. Overall, I prefer Emms' book.

Lane succeeds at presenting the reader with a reasonable repertoire for White based on the Scotch. While he sometimes suggests less explored options in order to avoid theory, he never seems to do so at the cost of soundness.

I would give a standard, basically correct repertoire book three starts. Lane gets an extra star because he (1) provides clear, concise explanations of plans for White and Black, both at the beginning of chapters and throughout games, (2) doesn't try to impress with drawn-out variations that would cause more confusion than clarity, and (3) ends each chapter with an excellent summary that includes guidance on what lines to favor.

If you are like me and prefer to build a repertoire as quickly as possible, you will find much of the book immediately irrelevant. For instance, if you adopt the simple Four Knights variation, you can safely ignore the chapters on the Mieses. You can accelerate the process further by reading Lane's end-of-chapter summaries before playing through the games. There you will find advice that will point you to the specific games that should be the objects of your attention.

None of this is to say that it would be distinctly unhelpful to play through all the games - Lane provides useful, lucid commentary throughout. It does mean, however, that (1) there is a straightforward way to get up and running with a full repertoire relatively quickly, and (2) I did not read the whole book before writing this review. I got what I wanted out of the book, and have no reason to think that Lane would drop the ball in chapters or games that I ignored, but caveat emptor.

I bought this book because the Scotch game is a part of a repertoire recommended by Sam Collins in his book An Attacking Repertoire for White. It is an attractive opening and you have to believe when Collins said "White is seeking a HUGE long-term advantage." The fine print is that Black gains a lot of activity very early on and so you should learn the theory. The chapter for the Scotch game in that book of Collins is insufficient.

This book of Gary Lane is one of the best chess opening books I ever had. He explains how to play this opening with clarity. The basic plans for both White and Black are laid-out first in every chapter.

The best thing about this book is that the lines are from the most recent games, many are from year 2005. That alone is worth every penny I paid for this book.

In his introduction, he promises to provide a repertoire for White that requires low maintenance and can be learned in a weekend. I believe he delievered on this promise.

Here is one to sweat you appetite. In his chapter about the 4...Qh4 line (very popular in club play even though a lot of experts say it is just not good), the main line involves a piece sacrifice by white. Gay Lane reckons it will still catch people out because Gutman's renowned Batsford book was published in 2001 and crucuially the sacrificial move is not mentioned. So if you play 4..Qh4 as black, you need to get this book and see if you can try to refute the sacrifice. I am already able to win several games under 20 moves with white using the line.

If you play the open game as white and you don't want to study the more theoretical Ruy Lopez, then the Scotch is the best alternative. And if you want to play the Scotch, this is the book you have to buy.

If you play 1..e5 (2...Nc6) as black, this is a must have book. The book is written from White's point of view, but you'll need this to examine and try to refute the recommended lines.

No material on 4...Qf6, which other than the main lines 4...Bc5 and 4...Nf6, is, according to more than one online database, one of the next most common continuations. One of those other fourth move responses, 4...Qh4, warrants it own chapter in this book, and two of the others, 4...Bb4+ and 4...g6, warrant illustrative games in the "Other Black Defences" chapter. Some might counter that 4...Qf6 usually transposes to 4...Bc5 lines, e.g. 4...Qf6 5. Be3 Bc5, but that is actually all the more reason to cover 4...Qf6: knowing the possibilities for transposition is arguably one of the most important facets in one's opening preparations. Besides, there is certainly some independent significance to 4...Qf6, i.e. 5. Nb3 does not attack Black's Bc5, and after 5. Be3 Qg6 can lead to very sharp but balanced play after 6. Nb5 Bb4+ 7. c3 Ba5.

This is a great book. It is not cumbered with variations. It is easy to prepare this opening for a tournament.
