Thanks (+1) to carlos3311! sunny
The file is pretty heavy (57.3 mb) and the original scan is not very good.
Here is my much lighter and OCR'd version (13.8 mb):
https://www.solidfiles.com/v/aqgdPpLxZAjDG
https://www60.zippyshare.com/v/YaMB8WyX/file.html

The quality is low, due to the shape of the original scan, but despite the much too dark background, it seems readable.

"Seize the Initiative Right from the Start!

Are you bored with slow maneuvering in systems such as the the Italian game with d2-d3 and the anti-Berlin? Do you enjoy confrontation in the center and sharp, tactical play? Alex Fishbein shows how the Scotch Gambit can give you exciting yet sound positions where you aim at the enemy king.

In the Scotch Gambit, White immediately strikes in the center and attacks the f7-pawn, provoking concessions from Black. An imbalance typically results, where White has attacking chances on the kingside. The Scotch Gambit will help you develop a finer feeling for the initiative and improve your combinational vision. You will also better understand strategic concepts, such as weak squares of one color and pawn structure nuances.

Fishbein, an experienced player and author, takes you into a modern grandmaster's research lab. Here, all ideas are scrutinized and prepared for use against an opponent who is similarly armed with the latest theory and technology. The most critical responses for Black receive special emphasis.

Alex Fishbein is an American grandmaster. His peak world ranking was #150. He was competitive in each of his four U.S. Championship appearances, including in 2004 when he won the Bent Larsen prize for the most uncompromising chess. A lifelong 1.e4 player, Fishbein is known for interesting and creative play."

ISBN-10: 1941270743
ISBN-13: 978-1941270745

An Amazon reader says: "Good Scotch Gambit (1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Bc4) repertoire book for white. Theory is explained clearly enough for intermediate level and illustrative games are provided.
Gives white several options:
Against 4... Nf6 the modern 5. e5 is the main recommendation and a big chunk of the book but 5. 0-0 is also covered.
Against 4... Bc5 author recommends sharp, rare and risky 5. 0-0!? (von der Lasa variation) and supports it with original research. More solid 5. c3 Nf6 6. e5 is also covered.
There are also chapters for the Max Lange Attack, early deviations and sidelines.
This book may interest Giuco Piano and Two Knights players too as most described lines are transpositions into these openings."
