e4 is probably the most common opening move, I guess, and then after that I always play Nf3, but I don't really know what to play after that. I used to try d4, and then an echange of knights (assuming they played Nc6) leaves my queen in the center, which is bad. I think this is called the Scottish Game, or something. Anyways I decided I really hate that, and so now I don't really know what to play. I have a book about e4 openings by Bruce Pandolfini, I don't know if he is the best person to read, though. I'd like to get one of those books that touches on just on specific opening, and then gives advice about where to go from there. So, if anyone has any book suggestions on openings (as white or black) that involve 1. e4, or just advice in general, I'd really appreciate it.
