Product Details

This is a new series which provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practicing of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge. In this book, Grandmaster John Emms invites you to join him in a study of the Nimzo-Indian an opening which is highly popular at all levels of chess and has been his favorite defense to 1 d4 for over 30 years. Here he shares his experience and knowledge, examines the opening from both sides of the board and offers answers to all the key questions.

  • "Emms is an excellent writer, as he has proven countless times in the past, so he is able to present the material in an interesting fashion. He leads the reader through the maze of variations and makes him understand what is important and what is not. This helps keep you entertained and focused on the task at hand. The task of learning the Nimzo is a large one, and you are bound to learn a great deal from studying the material in this book, especially with the tutelage that Emms provides. I enjoyed this book tremendously. I learned something from it and am sure that others will too. Anyone rated between 1500 and 2300 will benefit from this book. With the repertoire choices picked by Emms, the reader will be able to start playing the opening with confidence right from the get-go. (****** out of 6)" - Carsten Hansen -
  • "This is a book written by someone who has been played the Nimzo for more than 30 years, really knows the opening and has remained true to it. 'I swapped around with other openings, but always remained loyal to the Nimzo.' If you are a Nimzo player, or are thinking of taking the opening up, this book is a must." - Stephen Berry -
