If anyone is selling this I'm willing to pay more than 20 pound for it as it means a lot to me this track! These prices here are silly. No doubt a repress will be coming soon anyway.

Brighter Days Playlist by lewbylew. House sounds by l8nite. Of course, if you want to read one of the all time classics then go for it but for learning purposes I doubt you can do better. I'm sure I read somewhere that just everyone with a title has read the book at one time in their chess career. Not all of them like the book though GM Kevin Spraggett is particularly harsh on the book, but then again I think he's slightly unbalanced :.
Pimp my System
I have a lot of chess books that are half-read. But this one, I can't put down. Nimzowitsch has an engaging style. I just reached chapter 9, and I've been putting his examples and games into my database. He's a bit over my head, but I am seeing what he is talking about. I have another book coming that is probably more my speed, and I'm hoping will help me bridge the gaps, but I have a feeling My Syste m is going to be a very important chess book for me.
For me at least, it has been worth it. I'd ignore everyone's comment, focus on WGM's. I personally just think choosing 1 opening and reading deep into its variations can drastically improve your play. Instead of just learning sequence of moves, understanding the positional play and possible weaknesses is far greater than just remembering openings. If you review and analyze your blunders in every game and try to ensure it doesn't happen again this too will improve your tactics and your play.
Once you are super confident about one opening then consider looking at more in a similar manner. Its a slow method for improvement but it works and you generate your own databases for play on each opening. Perhaps using this method when looking at master level games you'll have a better understanding. As far as it goes for using a book for aiding studies, I personally feel all you need is access to internet and a chess board and practice what you learn about yourself and your blunders for your chosen opening.
Absolutely worth getting and I disagree that you need to be at a certain level to benefit from it. It's sort of the difference between serve-and-volley and baseline in tennis. Nimzovitch was one of the people who helped create the positional school, and some of his maneuvering victories have to be seen to be believed. You feel sorry for his opponents, who often appear to have not the slightest idea of what is going on. He bitterly regretted the fact that he never reached the 1 position himself; Alekhine was just too good at attacking. But watching Petrosian take the title would have been almost as satisfying.

I was recommended to read it each time I improved my play by points ELO. The first part of the book, "The Elements", is well written and instructive for beginning-intermediate players, I've read it 2 times by now. The second part, "Positional Play" contains more advanced topics, such as Prophylaxis. I believe the second part may be somehow dull and not pragmatic for beginners, as it was for me at the time, th This book has valuable information either for an amateur and a master chess player.
I believe the second part may be somehow dull and not pragmatic for beginners, as it was for me at the time, thus I recommend just a quick reading through, if you want go for it anyway. There is even a French edition that splits the this book in two books nice editor choice, obviously a chess connoisseur. This book is well known by its influence on World Champion Tigran Petrosian style of play, as "For infinitely many times have I analysed the games and positions from this book, and I liked very much to read it without chess.
So, it's not surprising that finally I have learned it by heart.

I admit though that if you were starting chess in it was much harder to find better books to teach you strategic ideas. This book would then have had to be on your shopping list to buy or check out from a local library. But by there are much higher quality books that will teach you all the same material with better illustrations and better explanations.
Jeremy Silman's "Reassess Your Chess, 4th edition" come This has to be one of the most highly overrated books in the history of chess. Well, mostly. For instance, a threat cannot be stronger than it's execution. Is it better to threaten checkmate or to deliver on the threat?? View all 5 comments. Written from - as separate journals, My System was the first grandmaster's book to be published.
It is written in a lucid style and often uses metaphor and analogy to reinforce a tactical or strategical detail. Nimzowitsch's wry sense of humour also adds colour and a personal tone to the book, and while the analogies are of their time, they still ring true with a charming antique quality. And of course the tactics and strategies are core to playing Chess competently. Essential reading Written from - as separate journals, My System was the first grandmaster's book to be published. Essential reading for lovers of the great game. This is the edition I read, which is a large bigger than trade book with lots of room to annotate in the margins and really nicely printed diagrams.
There isn't much I can say about Nimzo that others haven't said better. I will say that working my way through this book gave me a sense of confidence and direction in my game that was previously lacking. Having a solid plan in the game is everything, and Nimzo's My System will definitely help with that.

An excellent book - a true classic. The concepts and techniques are great. My only criticism is that I wish the writing was more prosaic. For example, page 19, "If I were running a race with someone, it would at least be a waste of precious time to stop in order to blow my nose, though there is nothing wrong with blowing one's nose".
Some of these types of statements often made the points more difficult to understand. Dec 16, Eric Nielson rated it liked it Shelves: chess. A very subtle book of instruction on the finer points of chess. Not really a book for beginners or even intermediates. There is also a tone of arrogance to it, as he seems to feel that he invented the game or something.
Not really my favorite, but I may not have been quite ready for this one. Apr 08, Simon rated it it was amazing Shelves: chess. The most charming educational chess book, a beginner-friendly, yet deep display of concepts and strategy. It's old, but with an old world charm, and its concepts are brilliantly expressed, often even with humour.
It's almost 90 years old and therefore there may be some ideas already outdated. Still, the best chess book I've ever read. Sep 18, Norman Styers rated it it was amazing. Wise and witty. The best book of chess instruction ever. Oct 03, Richard Lobo rated it it was amazing. A classic, possibly the best book on chess I've ever read. Nimzowitch reveals the simple, pure positional chess style he was famous for, with unprecedented clear explanation and reason.
Few other attempt to be an all-encompassing philosophy on how to play the game and how he saw the seeds of positional evolution in the most chaotic of situations. As one of the fathers of the hypermodern school, his mark on the development of chess theory cannot be understated, and this book perfectly encapsulate A classic, possibly the best book on chess I've ever read. As one of the fathers of the hypermodern school, his mark on the development of chess theory cannot be understated, and this book perfectly encapsulates that positional genius which allowed him to revolutionise the game.
