45 ( +1 | -1 ) a quick look on chessbaseGM Nigel Short and GM Morozevich seem to use this opening quite often(as white). Also, I know Shirov has used this opening before. In his game collection "fire on the board" he played a game this opening with the white pieces. I don't know about a good book specifically on this opening. Maybe somebody else does?
