Here is a must-have for all competitive players who prefer to base their game on solid moves rather than speculation, and who want a reliable yet initiative-seeking opening repertoire for White, based on the opening moves 1 d4 followed by 2 c4. Using more than 300 diagrams, an international Grandmaster and regular writer for CHESS magazine analyzes specific main lines and variations to combat Black's possible choices of the King's, Queen's, and Bogoljubow-Indian defenses, as well as the Modern Benoni and Benko Gambit. There are also promising methods against the various Black defenses to the Queen's gambit, and commentary on the Dutch and Gruenfeld defenses. An excellent and practical opening guide.

From a Marsh Towers review:

"Play 1.d4! by Richard Palliser (Batsford 2003), 288 pp. Preview at Google Books. Reviewed by Randy Bauer and Carsten Hansen. This is another fairly serious repertoire, as you'd expect from Palliser. The lines are solid, positionally sound choices that strive for structural advantage whenever possible. The lines, while solid GM choices, are also a bit less main-line than those recommended by Cox, so they would make a good repertoire for a positionally-minded player unprepared to keep on top of all the latest theory. This book could also combine well with Cox's to create a more well-rounded set of choices."

The reference is to Cox, STARTING OUT, d4...
