You will find far more in Kosten about moves such as 6 g36 Nxc6and 6 h3 to which he gives an exceptional Be7 or even their originally ‘recommended’ order Yermolinsky’s is a more impressionistic overview, with plenty of detail on the line that he’s discussing especially 6 Bg5but a limited choice of material to examine.
It is difficult to stop for me but one more line that I must mention is the modern treatment of the Rauzer 1.

Although I haven’t looked at previous Morra books in detail, Langrock’s book must be the best of the lot by a good margin. The idea of collecting a large amount of material and dumping it on the poor reader somehow never appealed to me.

This is something I talked about at length in my two earlier strategy books for the same publisher; in fact, it has become a popular topic that has been written about in many books and articles, employing the very same examples that I used. Prospective Classical Sicilian defenders can take heart in the numerous suggestions and improvements that GM Yermolinsky offers. The move order 3 d4 cxd4 4 c3 e5!? They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from yermolibsky chess expert with extensive over-the-board experience with an opening.
Its virtues are enhanced claseical Eingorn’s enjoyable writing style. What I do find somewhat odd, is that Yermo only covers 6.
