The classic first book on declarer play at bridge, covering the topic with clarity, skill and humor. More than fifty years after its first publication, this book has been revised and updated to bring it into line with modern methods of play and bridge education.
The basic fundamentals laid out with terrific simplicity, as they were over 50 years ago in the original editions. Barbara Seagram has done a tremendous service in updating them to account for changes in bridge teaching. Rather than languishing on a dusty shelf in a library, these books belong in the hands of beginning bridge players. Both are easy to read, and a great source of material for beginner lessons. — ACBL Bulletin 05/01/2020
These two books are considered to be classics - and with good reason. The clarity of writing, the simplicity of the teaching, the light style and the well organised and logical progression of the subject matter combine to make them hard to beat as guides for beginners and early improvers. Kantar’s wry humour is always detectable in the background. It’s good news all round that these classics have been re-issued, and with revisions by Seagram that have only improved them. — A New Bridge Magazine 12/27/2019
