Chess books about Nimzo Indian Defence

The Nimzo-Indian is possibly black's most respected defence to 1.d4; it is based on Aron Nimzowitsch's concept fo controlling the centre with pieces rather than pawns. After 1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3, the move 3...Bb4 sets up an immediate pin and creates the positional threat of giving white doubled pawns by taking on c3. In this way black can control the centre while developing his pieces rapidly.
White has many possible ways of playing against the Nimzo including some unusual tries. These include 4.Qb3, 4.f3, 4.Nf3 and 4.g3. Of these, 4.f3 is the most ambitious. Also challenging is the closely related Samisch Variation, 4.a3, where white expends a whole tempo to force black to part with his bishop immediately.
