Not the greatest bridge book 11 Dec. 2012
By Henry Bethe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Boye is a very very good bridge player. In contrast to, say, The Rodwell Files, this is simply a compendium of bridge hands, many of which are of the "look how I fooled the opponents" variety; the sort of bridge stories one shares at the bar after an event. I was hoping to learn. I didn't. But a lot of the hands were fun. I would have laughed at the bar.
Good book for advanced players 23 Jan. 2013
By N. Siew - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book demonstrates Boye's prowess at the bridge table. Most hands are interesting and demonstrate how Boye outsmarted his opponents.
This might seem at first just as an anecdote book to be enjoyed in a long flight, but the book does have an extra value for good players who have an open
mind and can see the underlying principles beyond the flamboyant bids and plays. Boye's actions and reasoning, as crazy as those might be, are very instructive and
carry the essence of an expert state of mind during the bidding and play.

Beginners and intermediates wont learn from the book how to play sound and 'proper' Bridge.
This is most instructive to advanced players and beyond who already possess the critical thinking of an experienced bridge player.
For those players, I give it a 4 star rating.
Good bridge - dully writen 25 Aug. 2013
By paulscott - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The reporting of interesting hands at high level tournaments may be of value to players wanting to improve their game. But there's little excitement, humor or development of personalities that appear in other works by Bird or for example Omar Sharif. Read it to improve your game, but do NOT expect to be entertained.
