New Book: Aron Nimzowitsch

 Aron Nimzowitsch is a biography of one of the greatest chess legends ever, who played at the beginning of the 20th century.  The book begins with a great quote from IM Jens Enevoldsen “Besides playing chess, there is nothing more delightful than reading about chess.”  McFarland has a very large chess book line and Aron Nimzowitsch is another great biographical work filled with tables, charts and chess board illustrations to accompany the games being analyzed.
