"This book manages to do extremely well the thing that most previous books on squeezes have not done, and that is to take the mystery out of this part of the game. A terrific book."
— BRIDGE magazine
"Bird does a great job illustrating the various kinds of squeezes."
— Bridge Today Digest
"The most readable book ever produced on a topic that alarms many."
— The New York Times
"This book deserves to become the classic on the subject. It is outstanding and highly recommended."
— The ABCL Bulletin
"In his engaging, economical style, the author explains the ideas in an easy-to-understand way, avoiding the terminological mire that has made some previous works tough going. The emphasis is on practical considerations rather than theoretical interest."
— The Bridge World
"David Bird understands that the subject is scary to much of his potential audience. Attentive readers will, however, lose their squeeze anxiety - guaranteed. He is such a smooth writer that once you get into the book, the topic seems elementary, at least in the discussions of the less-complicated squeezes. Most of the discussion is aimed at helping the reader see and execute a squeeze when the opportunity presents itself in actual play. Each chapter is enhanced with examples of squeezes executed by famous players in high-level competitions. These nearly justify the price of the book on their own. This book should be on the shelf of all serious players."
— ACBL Bulletin
