Twenty-six of the world's best players talk about bridge — how they got
started, their best and worst memories, their favorite hands, the players they
most admire, the opponents they most fear, and their hopes for the future of
the game. As you read this book, you will see the human side of people
who up to now may just be names in a bridge column, but you'll also get
from them a series of tips and ideas that will help you improve your own
game. Men and women from all parts of the world are included, and the
result is a fascinating look at how bridge is viewed in different countries.
