    That book only covers the classical variation ( 4. ...Bf5), right?

    I've read a rave review of Peter Wells book on the Caro-- not sure how good they are since I haven't seen them yet. Houska's book is said to have 10 pages on the Caro exchange, which sounds great!

    I would think playing the Caro is alot like playing the French in the sense of what variations to be on the look out for--- the Advance and the Exchange... no need to sweat the others unless they start showing up alot.

    Everyman books are great-- especially getting them used on Amazon and saving money as opposed to buying them new!

    Houska gives 4...Bf5 as her Main Line response (as opposed to 4...Nd7 or the immediate 4...Nf6), but she tries to offer some dynamic alternatives to the more usual goal of ...0-0-0, and we see often see some queenside counterplay with ...b7-b5 and delayed/kingside castling by Black.

    The Panov Attack by Anatoly Karpov and Mikhail Podgaets has improved my play as black against this hated opening no end.
