Descripción

My System 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.

 

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.

Aron Nimzowitsch

The problem for an English-speaking audience has been that  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 translators frequently toned down many passages, fearing

Nimzowitsch’s 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.

 

Page 269: “It would serve no purpose to mention or even to hint at all the scorn and mockery which

was directed at me; let it suffice to say that nobody has ever been mistreated like that in the whole

history of chess. The reward for my new ideas consisted of abuse, or at best of systematic silence.”

Reviews

“Since its publication approximately eighty years ago, My System has been one of the cornerstones of

chess theory and instruction. It has been a major influence on the development of chess theory and

praxis for most of the 20th century, and will continue to do so in the 21st. The re-release of

Nimzowitsch’s extraordinary work, along with the additional material included by the publisher

makes the appeal and importance of this great book as relevant as it ever was.”
