I've Got Your Back!
Nothing is scarier than not knowing what to expect—as we all know, knowledge is power. I'm here to inform you, encourage you and help you (and your partner) help yourselves. Use this book as a way to get into the mysteries of bridge and its most challenging form, duplicate. Sure, knowledge of basic bidding protocols is necessary, but so is knowing what to expect, how to develop a partnership, what's going to happen as you play in various events, and how to deal with mistakes and setbacks.
Use this book like an extended glossary—it will give you the barebones start which will allow you to make an educated move to more information when you want it.
Never forget: bridge is for fun!
