If you would have to name a few off the top of your head, what would you list as absolute chess classics? First book I'm thinking of is Nimzowitsch's My System.
I agree of my system, and every single book written by Jeremy Silman.
I disagree with My System.
anything by Reinfeld.
Freddie's the man!
Chess Story or The Royal Game by Stefan Zweig (Schachnovelle in German).
I agree with My System. Even though I prefer Pachman, there's no denying the enormous influence My System has had. So I'd say most important was My System, and best (in my opinion) is Pachman's book(s) on strategy.
The first part of My System was pretty instructional. The second part I didn't understand at all (overprotecting strategic points ... whuuut ? lol)
Well, that is indeed a bit of a problem with the title...that ancient bugaboo, "Best/most important" Misalignment Syndrome.
