Walter Thomas Downs' chess works

Original thinkers will always have room on this blog. Now we offer a free download link to Walter Thomas Downs' works This is his brief description of the systems as follows:
"Featured are two complete chess systems:
The Tiger and Dragon.
The Bear.
These systems feature complete repertoires for White and Black as well as all the "nuts and bolts" you need to be a complete chess player. They were written with the idea that the chess enthusiast need never have to buy another book on chess. The systems are backed up by intensive computer, mathematical and/or psychological analyses, as well as intensive research using chess openings databases."
