This book presents excellent, thoroughly explained card combinations in context (for example, a variety of declarer-play problems in which dummy holds Qx of a suit and declarer holds Ax of the same suit, or vice versa). The reader "listens" to the author's train of thought as he plans the play of the hand. It is both fascinating and instructive to see the numerous correct ways to play the same suit combinations, depending on the hand in which they appear. This book is sure to improve anyone's declarer play (unless you're already Zia or Meckstroth), far beyond the how-to of the half-dozen or so suit combinations treated in a collection of about 50 hands. As in all of Lawrence's bridge books, the lessons average to expert players need to learn are clearly and cogently stated.

What a super little book! Lawrence not only does what he says he'll do (tell you how to play certain card combinations), but he also tells you how he thinks as he approaches those combinations in actual play. Not a bridge beginners book, but a book that improvers and established, good players can learn a lot from. Best of all, you can dip into it time and again, and get something new from it each time.

A great player who can also write reviewing interesting card combinations. What's not to like!?

If you want to improve your declarer play buy it!

This is not a book for the beginner, or even the intermediate player, but If your ambition is to be an expert bridge player this will help you on your way. There are no simple rules or guidelines here. Instead Lawrence clearly explains on each carefully selected hand how the expert approaches it - using every bit of information of what the opponents bid or didn't bid and what cards they played or discarded to assess the likely distribution and honour placings, and then weighing up the opportunities (or dangers) that this presents. He covers this complex topic in great depth, but makes it very readable.

Have found this to be very helpful for me. Have only just started reading it and making notes but feel it was a good buy.
Would recommend.
