From the Inside Flap
For many years, Nimzovich was known as the "Stormy Petrel" of the chess world. Today, his profound theories of positional chess are accepted as a matter of course, and a knowledge of them is essential to every player who wants to improve his game.
My System describes a theory of chess; it also describes the character and genius of its author. It is a very readable book, for Nimzovich's methods sparkle with humor, pungent originality, and witty explanations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It may be difficult to understand at first.
In my opinion one has to read this at least twice.
It's a book that provokes and challenges you to think differently about chess.
One may have to read each chapter with a dictionary available.
The 50 illustrated games in part 3 are highly instructive.
I recommend My System, but it is tough.
