Chess Praxis

Chess Praxis - Aron Nimzowitsch, Anon Nimozowitsch I flipped through this book in a few nights (I borrowed it from the university library; I was glad to see it in algebraic notation). I was glad that Nimzowitsch grouped the games by theme and added a bit of text at the start of each section. There's really not much more to say about Chess Praxis, however. The games are instructive but the book isn't nearly as useful as My System.
