Read full description of the books:
One of the most influential chess books ever written. Controversy still rages as to whether Nimzovitch actually invented the ideas described here, but he was certainly the person who popularized them. And his writing style. If nothing else, it's memorable. What chess player is there who can't quote at least a few well-known precepts, like "Restrain, blockade and then destroy!" or "The passed pawn is a criminal, who must be kept under lock and key!"
Chess players divide broadly into "tactical" (they attack directly, relying on their skill in calculating forcing variations) and "positional" (they block the position and maneuver slowly, hoping that long-range planning ability will be the deciding factor). 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.
It was a shame that Nimzovitch didn't live to see Tigran Petrosian become World Champion. 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.
