Aaron Summerscale's d4 Dynamite! should appeal to less-advanced players. Young players often start out with a simple repertoire 1.d4 based on the Colle Attack; Summerscale provides such a repertoire with the Colle-Zukertort (1.d4, 2.Nf3, 3.e3, 4.Bd3 with a later b3 and Bb2) versus 1...d5, and a Colle with 1.Nf3, 2.Nf3, 3.e3, 4.Bd3, 5.0-0 and 6.c4 versus ...Nf6/...e6/...b6 systems. Summerscale cannot be faulted for lack of complete-game examples and strategic explanations: the tape lasts two-and-a-half hours! Without denying it's possible benefit to stronger players, I see this tape as a practical primer in elementary tactics and a non-threatening way for young players to be introduced to opening play. There is a great deal more care taken to explain why some 'obviously' winning position is indeed winning (I fast-forwarded a lot!), and what the ideas are behind the various plans tried by both sides. Unlike Davies' and Ward's repertoires, this one isn't as strictly organized or appropriate for memorization; it's merit resides in the simplicity of the ideas involved. Consider this tape if you're looking for a safe and quiet way of playing the opening or have a young student who might benefit from such a system.
