This is a completely new translation of Nimzowitsch's classic work, which will allow the reader to appreciate influential ideas in modern language. Beautifully produced as all other Quality Chess books and with a short article by Jacob Aagaard and John Shaw with (computer-aided) improvements on Nimzowitsch' analysis.
A superb collection of Aron Nimzowitsch's best games annotaded by the great man himself, but it's even more than that. Nimzowitsch and his hypermodern ideas had a huge influence on modern chess thinking. Nimzowitsch first expounded his views in My System. In his follow-up Chess praxis he demonstrated and explained how his concepts worked in his own games.
Aron Nimzowitsch was one of the greatest chess players of the 1920s and 1930s, ranked just behind the famous World Champions Alekhine and Capablanca. His reputation as an author is higher still.
