DO BETTER ON DEFENSE!
Defense is the hardest aspect of bridge, in part because the defenders have less information to work with than the declarer does. That's why it is so important for them to communicate, and why a solid understanding of basic signalling methods is critical.
The first edition of this book was published many years ago, under the title Step by Step Signalling. It was reissued in 2002 in a new version, Better Signalling Now, incorporating suggestions from Tim Bourke and former world champion Sandra Landy, and reached an even wider audience. In its newest edition, the author has added a discussion of some of the signalling methods popular among today's experts, and discusses how much of an improvement, if any, they offer over standard methods. As before, practical examples abound, and every chapter includes hands from the world's finest players.
