Aron Nimzowitsch My System: My System is at the top of a very short list of chess classics. Nimzowitsch's ideas have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking.
Most chess masters will at some point have studied Nimzowitsch's work, and not to have read My System is by many regarded as a shocking gap in a chess player's education. The problem for an English-speaking audience has been that My System was written in German more than eighty years ago.
The commonly-used contemporary translations have sounded dated for some time, and were always questionable: the translaters frequently toned down many passages, fearing Nimzowitsch biting wit would be too controversial.
This edition uses a brand-new translation that recreates the author's original intentions. For the first time an English-speaking audience can appreciate the true nature of a famous chess book.
Extra features to the book: - games have been "with reason" computer-checked - a small essay about the current relevance of My System, by Jacob Aagaard - an essay with a dozen positions from the book that the publishers have attached a new opinion about
Artur Yusupov: "I think the magical power of this book can be found in the fact that the author managed to be ahead of his time"
Aron Nimzowitsch Chess Praxis: 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.
