Chess Explained: The Nimzo-Indian - download book
When Black uses the Nimzo-Indian it is very rare for him to fall behind in development, so that he is almost never overwhelmed by a lightning attack in the opening. The main and in fact only problem for Black is that he has to be willing to give up his dark-squared bishop, which means that his kingside is weakened slightly and White gains the famous advantage of the bishop-pair. However, Black always obtains something in return for this strategic concession, whether it be better pawn-structure (doubled white pawns on the c-file, isolated or hanging pawns in the enemy camp, etc.) a pawn-majority in the centre, or a considerable advantage in development which enables him, with energetic play, to maintain the balance.
