Format: Paperback
Takes the reader from the basics of play up to the most complicated squeezes and endplays, and makes it all seem effortless. If you only buy one book on playing a bridge hand, this should be the one.

This was recommended to me.

I've worked my way through several times and find it very accessible, well written, and each example is well explained.

It's an eye opener to see all sorts of hocus pocus opportunites revealed. Truly amazing.

I have managed to grasp and use some of the concepts and my declarer play has improved no end. A long way before I can grasp and use all when playing - rather than having 30 mins to puzzle over each example - but this book is full of riches!

The book is very cheap, and it excellent value given the content. Best value book I've purchased for years!

My last recommendation to you is that you might purchase two of them. My six month old copy is so thumbed through from re-reading that it's beginning to fall apart! Just a thought!

This book is a must for aspiring players - it is the most accessible bridge book I have read, and believe me, I have read loads. My declarer play has certainly improved since I bought it.

Simple elegant and entertaining book on play of the hand 4 Jun 1999
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Takes the reader from the basics of play up to the most complicated squeezes and endplays, and makes it all seem effortless. If you only buy one book on playing a bridge hand, this should be the one.

Great beginner/low intermediate book 2 Mar 2006
By B. Einhorn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is fun to read, and has some quiz problems, rather than just showing examples.

I felt there was good overall coverage of a variety of topics, the basics, a little deductive reasoning, and even simple squeezes.

This is a good book for someone who is relatively new to bridge. If you have never read books on declarer play, then this would be a nice start.

After you read this try:

Card Play Made Easy - Klinger

Countdown to Winning Bridge - Bourke

Card Play Technique - Mollo

The Watson book may have been a classic in its time, but I think there are much better books available now.

My No Trump Has Improved!! Yea!! 31 Oct 2008
By Louise Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Basic bridge at its best presented in a fun and easy to read format, order both of her books together. I learned so much when I read this book that I hadn't learned from my bridge lessons (the book the instructor used)and what I hadn't picked up in my 4 years since of playing bridge. She knows how to explain so that it makes sense on how to play the hand ~ and now it feels so good to be doing it the right way! ~~ Dorothy teaches about card combinations, reading the cards, playing both no trump and suit contracts. And now I know the safety play, end play and squeeze play tooooooo. ~~ This is a book that I need a refresher on periodically, so my copy is well used.
