Giddins, Steve: The French Winawer: Move by Move (EVE)
This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge.

This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge.
