Of the three traditional phases of chess play - the opening, the middlegame and the endgame - the opening is the phase average players confront most often. Unfortunately, though, many openings are not completed successfully, partly because until now most opening instruction has consisted of tables of tournament level moves that offer no explanations for reasons behind them. Consequently, these classical opening patterns can serve as little more than references to the average player.
In Chess Openings: Traps and Zaps, Bruce Pandolfini uses his unique "crime and punishment" approach to provide all the previously missing explanation, instruction, practical analyses, and much, much more. The book consists of short "openers" typical of average players, arranged according to the classical opening variations and by level of difficulty.
Each example includes: the name of the overriding tactic the name of the opening a scenario that sets up the tactic to be learned an interpretation that explains why the loser went wrong, how he could have avoided the trap, and what he should have done instead a review of important principles and useful guidelines to reinforce each lesson.

I think there is a typo Ne4 is not possible. The argument for a typo is strengthened by two facts:. I wonder if this book was originally published in descriptive notation and reissued later translated to algebraic.
