Starting Out: The Nimzo-Indian by Chris Ward is excellent.(reprinted in 2006)so very up to date.also:Dangerous Weapons: The Numzo-Indian by John Emms, Chris Ward and Richard Palliser is very interesting.(2006).

After a few years playing other defences to 1.d4 I have returnd to the idea of playing the Nimzo-Indian. Questions are:

1) I don't have any up to date books on it, so does anyone have any recommendations of good titles?

2) If White plays 3.Nf3 I need a different plan! My old favourite was to play 3...Bb4 anyway and go into a fairly formulaic Bogo-Indian, based on ..d6 and ..e5. It is not bad but I want to extend my range a bit.
What do people think of the Queens' Indian in terms of success, practical chances, style of play.
And any other alternatives that I haven't thought of??

Best wishes,
