Inefficient Repertoire Review by MrMxyzptlk
Rating
First, Akobian does a good job presenting clearly and explaining ideas. However, I find it odd that he advocates 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3. Nc3 dxe4 (Rubinstein Variation), but in the Tarrasch after 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 he covers 3...Nf6. I would have preferred he either explain a repertoire using only the Rubinstein in greater detail or give a repertoire in the Winawer (3.Nc3 Bb4) or Classical (3.Nc3 Nf6). His Tarrasch repertoire isn't so useful because he doesn't explain the Winawer or Classical variations because an opponent that knows your repertoire can play Nc3 and only have to be prepared for the Rubinstein.

French Classical Review by Bruce
Rating
I wanted to learn a new opening as black against e4 as I always played e5. I just finished watching the French classical and couldn't believe how easy Akobian explained and made me understand these lines in the Classical French. I have yet to view the exchange, Tarrasch, advance, and unusual lines in the French, if they are done as well as the classical version then I will be playing the French in no time!
