This book is simply far superior to anything else I have seen written on this opening—my own book included. The narrative, the explanatory prose, the analysis, the countless improvements, new ideas and so on, makes this book phenomenally splendid. If you want to understand how to play this opening, then this book is a perfect place to start. (Carsten Hansen ChessCafe.com
The author is constantly pointing out the positional consequences of the various thematic ideas throughout the lines. There are times when his research will almost certainly change the future course of theory. Whatever your connection to Nimzo, make sure that you get hold of a copy. An absolute must. (Grandmaster Glenn Flear)
An outstanding book. Sokolov banks up his verbal assessments with concrete variations, but the prose is much more valuable for the layman rated below 2400, who will remember the helpful advice long after the analysis has been forgotten. (John Donaldson, International master Chess Today
