For the first time, an English-speaking audience can appreciate the true nature of this famous, classic chess book as this brand-new translation recreates the author's original intention.

Nimzowitsch's ideas about how to play better chess have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking. It is commonly agreed that almost every chess master in the world has studied Nimzowitsch's work. This is the first new English translation in decades. This is the first new English translation in decades and, unlike previous translations, does not censor or dilute the author's writing.
