It claims that it's for advanced players!? I found [the books of Aaron Nimzowitsch to be] very difficult to read or understand. The books that are most highly thought of are not necessarily the most useful. Go with those that you find to be readable; A lot of things in there is sheer provocation, and it does need an expereienced player to know what exactly must be taken at its face value.
I love 'My System', and I have read it cover to cover one dozen times, but suggesting it to a class player is an entirely different matter. Nigel Short has claimed that 'My System' should be banned.
Stratos Grivas says that the book is very bad. I don't share their opinion, but I am pretty sure that there are more useful reads for class players out there.
If you don't read My System until after you've become an experienced player, you may initially feel disappointed that the material is elementary and almost self-evident. I found Aaron's work very interesting. A lot of concepts: easy to read, but certainly hard to retain all the information. In my opionion, as much as you advance, the more you should read it to understand deeply the concepts.
Just to add to John Watson's comment and to illuminate what he really thinks about "Mein System", I quote his conclusion from the link offered above:. In conclusion, for those who haven't read them, I recommend My System and the associated works in this ebook as strongly as I do any other chess book. These days most classic works are no longer essential to a chess education, especially since the Internet; but if there's an exception, Nimzowitch's work is it. Siegbert Tarrasch's "Schachspiel" and this one are easily my most favorite and most used books about chess.
Perhaps if he hadn't read it he would be a GM by now? Personally, I like to think it is a fantastic book, one of my favourites, not easy to read but an absolute classic of its era and that is what one has to remember. I learnt a huge amount from this book. I am wondering why so many masters are so excited about "My System".
Is it because there were not as much good chess books available when they grew up? There was also no 'text speech' so they could read difficult books. I wonder what people think about Fisher's 'My 60 Memorable Games'? I was spellbound by it. Just one thought- every GM's ideas are worth learning about if one is serious about the game.
Good point. Being "serious" about the game is certainly not my main priority when reading a chess book. Aug 8, 1. Aug 8, 2. Aug 10, 3.

Originally over a series of five brochures from to , the book—one of the early works on hypermodernism —introduced many new concepts to followers of the modern school of thought. It is generally considered to be one of the most important books in the history of chess. He regards the following as the elements of chess strategy:. The next part, "Positional Play" German : Das Positionsspiel , is based largely on the elements taught in the first part. In it, Nimzowitsch tells how to play for a positional advantage. In particular, he argues that the center can be effectively controlled using pieces instead of pawns.
