Take a look at my new book, "The Fine Art of Chess": https://www.amazon.com/Fine-Art-Chess-Lyudmil-Tsvetkov-ebook/dp/B07SPFTJSZ/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=fine+art+of+chess&qid=1568188697&s=books&sr=1-1
It took me almost a whole year to conceive and write.
It coule be regarded as a companion volume to "The Secret of Chess", targeting all levels of chess players.
In distinction to "The Secret of Chess", the book represents a thoroughly commented game collection, featuring 50 high-quality instructive games, annotated move by move.
Stockfish and Komodo are also featured on the pages of the book.
What could be of particular interest to computer chess fans is scrupulous opening analysis for a wide range of openings, for example why the English Opening, 1. c4 is best,
and why the Dutch Defence, 1. d4 f5?! is suboptimal, due to 2. d5!? vigorous reply.
Engine developers may benefit a bit from the theory expounded.

Best move - 2. d5!?
How long for your engines to see it, lol?

Discussions about 2.d5 have been going on at Talkchess. There's a big controversy about where exactly the move ranks when you sort all possible moves from best to worse, but everyone agrees it's NOT in the top 15.

Hi Lyudmil,
I see that you are back with the pressing of  another book? I'm not sure what you are trying to prove here by positing that 2.d5 is even an interesting move for white to play in the opening.

To your suggested point of " How long for your engines to see it?" -only because it wouldn't necessarily be considered a primary candidate move. The best way to  analysis-is make the move and put it into play.
Black can respond with 2..c6 forcing white to respond with 3.c4...black might respond with Knight 3...Nf6!?-

But leaving it up to, say Stockfish right at the outset of the board position
Some candidate moves presented 2.Bg5, 2.Nf3- 2.g3!?

White loses a bit of tempo with 2.d5.
