Item description for The Nimzo-Indian: 4 e3 by Carsten Hansen...

Ever since Nimzowitsch introduced his flexible, dynamic defence to the queen's pawn, debate has raged over White's best reply. Many variations have been in and out of fashion, but one line in particular has proved an enduring weapon - the sound and solid 4 e3 line, known as the Rubinstein Variation. The 4 e3 Nimzo is extraordinarily rich in strategy. All manner of different central pawn-structures can arise, such as the blocked centre characteristic of the Hbner Variation and a variety of IQP positions. Moreover, in some lines the central tension persists well into the middlegame. The 4 e3 Nimzo provides a stern test of both players' understanding of chess, and so is an ideal choice for those who are looking to win as either colour.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Nimzo-Indian: 4 e3?

Too detailed opening book  May 8, 2003
Giving this tome a mere 3 stars might be harsh, but I have to be subjective. I personally prefer opening books that teach you to understand the opening, but this one concentrates too much on moves and variations.

Having gone through most of the book and having studied some chapters more closely, I cannot say that I understand the e3 Nimzo any better now than before. It doesn't help me much to know if the author thinks that a certain side variation is "=" or "+=", if he provides little explanation why.

If you are a strong player (I am <2200) and have an excellent memory and you want to memorize moves, this book could be for you. Or if you already understand the opening in question, and you just need a reference book. But I was slightly disappointed, and I decided not to take up the e3 variation as I had planned.
