I don;t have arties book but the guy is a wealth of knowledge. Last weekend he was one of the comentators at Nationals and, man, he knows his shit. As for Takano, I love programing. I had hoped that takano would be more influenced by the more modern russian system but I'll have to wait and see ( Charniga has talked about how Prilepin, Alexei Ni, the crazy jumping kazajastan coach, and other's work has led to a intensification and specialization of the soviet system, even since the 80s). Another thing I totally forgot was pendlayforum. It's amazing, you have Glenn, Don, Dan Bell, Stephen Powell and lots of other very knowledgable and friendly dudes.
