It doesn't matter whether you know a heart from a spade right now - by the time you finish this book you'll be able to enjoy a social game of bridge with your friends.
Barbara Seagram's 25 Bridge Conventions You Should Know continues to be a bestselling book year after year, and her books on the game have more than 250,000 copies in print in four languages. This new book, for complete beginners, is based on the material that Barbara uses in her own classes to introduce hundreds of new players to the game every year.
Every aspect of the game of bridge is covered - bidding, declarer play, defensive cardplay and scoring - with user-friendly tips, stories and quizzes to help you have fun while you learn. As well, Karen Lampert's cartoons will bring a smile to your face and help you remember key points as you work through the lessons. Use this book on your own or with three friends - it works equally well both ways. And at the end of it, you'll be able to play the most popular card game the world over.

"A good beginning bridge book... all the basics of bidding and play are covered. [Even if you have played a little before], if you pick this book up and master most of it, the next time you sit down to play with your social foursome you might just have a little surprise for them."
— The Denver Post
"This is a terrific teaching text. If you've ever had the experience of bridge-playing friends asking you for a recommendation for a book that teaches beginning basics, this would be a great suggestion."
— ACBL Bulletin
"Another winner for Barbara Seagram. By the end of the 11-lesson course, a beginning bridge player has been given all the information needed to play with friends, online, or in a novice game at the club."
— Pat Harrington, American Bridge Teachers' Association
"The graphic and layout provide a very clear presentation. Aspects of cardplay are mentioned in the earliest chapters (avoiding the common error of frontloading the bidding). There are lots of helpful quizzes, and the chatty writing welcomes newcomers. Cartoons by Karen Lampert work hand-in-glove with the breezy style."
— The Bridge World
"A laudable effort that I would recommend as an introduction to bridge."
— The Toronto Star
"An ideal beginner's manual for the general reader wanting to learn the fundamentals of this popular pastime. A core addition to school and community library collections."
— Mid-West Book Review
