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!
