Review

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, ChessCafe.com

From the Back Cover

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 practising 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 favourite defence 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.
  • Essential guidance and training in the Nimzo-Indian
  • Written by a renowned Nimzo-Indian expert
  • Includes a Nimzo-Indian repertoire for Black

The best book in the Move by Move series... I would assume. So far I have only read The Ruy Lopez: Move by Move by Neil McDonald but it seems that The Slav: Move by Move by Cyrus Lakdawala seems to be of equal and maybe slightly lesser quality compared McDonald's book. After going through the sample pages of The Slav: Move by Move I still feel that The Nimzo-Indian: Move by Move is and probably will be the best book in the Move by Move series.

This book is written by John Emms. No duh?! John Emms is the current chief adviser of Everyman Chess and has this unnatural ability to be able to crank out book after book. But are those books of high quality intended for their target audience? I personally think so. John Emms has written some great books in the past such as The Easy Guide to the Ruy Lopez, Easy Guide to the Nimzo-Indian, Play the Najdorf: Scheveningen Style, Play 1. e4 e5, his little snippet on the New Archangel on the theoretical tome on the Archangel, Play the Open Games as Black, The Survival Guide to Rook Endings and other great books written for Everyman's Starting Out series. But what makes these books that Emms has written in the past so great? Well, I personally believe it's a mixture of a couple reasons: 1. Emms has great work ethic. If he personally hasn't dabbled in the subject, he will compensate his lack of experience with very deep research. An example would be Emms' book on the Najdorf in which Emms has cited many works in his bibliography. 2. Even if Emms has experience in that subject... well, all the better: you will get deep research, great practical advice and insightful explanatory prose.

WuvMuffin has already written a very extensive review of this book. Let me just add that I very much like the two "move by move" books in the Everyman Series that I have read (actually skimmed through), both this one and Mr. Lakdawala's book on the Slav. I think that the question and answer approach to teaching chess openings is very effective (my first experience with this approach was Matthew Sadler's award-winning book "Queen's Gambit Declined", also an Everyman publication). But I want to point out that this book is written primarily as a repertoire book for black, with nothing on certain variations, such as 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. Qc2 00 5. a3 Bc3 6. Qc3 b6 (the book examines only 6... d5 in this position). Since I am interested in this opening more from white's side than black's, I was a little disappointed in that aspect. Still, an excellent book, as long as you are looking for a book written primarily for players on the black side.

My four stars are for the author of this book; the publisher deserves a one-star review. The content is superb. John Emms has a great track record as a chess author and this book will only add to his reputation. This book is not intended to be an encyclopedia if the Nimzo-Indian, but Emms has chosen most of the most important lines, and covered them in depth. One word of warning: this is a book for people who are serious about learning! You don't have to be a great player to take advantage of the book--any serious student rated USCF 1500 and above will get a lot out of it--but it's a book that requires the reader to participate. All through the book Emms takes time out to ask pointed questions about the position, or to ask the reader to evaluate alternatives. These are not idle questions--they're an important part of the learning process

Unfortunately, Everyman Chess has done a rotten job with the physical production of the book. The book is a hefty 368 pages, but Everyman has chosen to bind it the way you would bind a cheap pamphlet. As a result, the book will simply not remain open. You have to read it with one hand pressing down on the book. The second you take your hand off the book, it closes! Both the reader and the author deserve better.

OK readers,
What can you expect from John Emms and Everyman chess publishing? That depends on your particular cup of cafe, tea, beer, or alcohol! Or even better for the non-drinking types out there. This is a great edition from the new "Move by Move" series of Everyman books. The information on this defense is new/updated and inspired with the passion of the author's no nonsense writing style. I was impressed by the book's size, layout and tight binding. It will not lay flat when using with a mini-board but having books that did lay out nicely, caused some pages to come apart. That WILL NOT be a problem with this 350+ page book! Just bend down the pages accordingly and you'll be fine. WHO SAID LEARNING GREAT CHESS ISN'T WORK?!? I purchased this book to supplement my TANGO Defense (1. d4 Nf6 2.c4 Nc6 3. Nf3 e6) with a Nimzo variation that occured quite frequently during play. This book offers just the right mix of comments/notation needed to give you a clear/concise game plan for Black and White, including annotated games stressing the ideas involved. Keep the "Move by Move" series ALIVE Everyman publishing and we're looking forward to the books on the Sicilian Defenses....In the meantime, BUY, BUY, BUY this book!
