Nimzowitsch - My system

  • 5 years ago · Quote · #1


    I have My System....

    but there is another book out there,

    Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy: Advances sinces Nimzowitch.


    Does the latter supercede the former...?

    Or are they complimentary?

    From the sound of the titles alone, the latter builds on the former, not supercedes it. I'm guessing My System will remain an excellent read ;)

    Both books - all levels.  Start with Nimzo and go from there.

    I have my system by Nimzowitsch, but it's hard too use for me because it's all in the old chess notation which I don't understand very well.

    I just bought (I hope) the newest version of My System (version 2007, ISBN 9789197600538).

    Looking forward to read it after these comments!

    My system is a great book to understand basic chess thinking.

    For endgames maybe you should see Keres - series of endings rooks and queens.
