parisattack: Here is a list of 1. ...d6 repertoire books. If you can add to it, please do: 1. ... d6 REPERTOIRE BOOKS

This and 1. ...Nc6 are two of the most interesting first-move repertoires for black. These are repertoires where the basic structure of the game remains the same for black, irrespective of 1. e4 or 1. d4.

The basic openings here are the Philidor, Old Indian, Lion and Prybil. I do not include the Pirc where black fianchettos the KB.
