Review

“If you want to be better, buy the book”
The Spectator

Synopsis

This is a large print bridge guide aimed at the less experienced or social player who longs to improve but keeps repeating the same mistakes, often not knowing that they are mistakes. Andrew Robson, The Times Bridge Correspondent, is both a champion bridge player and an inspired teacher. At his bridge club, he teaches and tutors and has acquired great practical knowledge about how people learn to play bridge. Based on Andrew Robson's Friday column in "The Times", common bridge mistakes are presented with an outline of what actually happened and what should have happened. Along with every mistake is a handy tip 'If you remember just one thing..' which has proved very popular with "The Times" readers. The first section of the book, 'The Game', is a basic outline providing the key to playing a sensible game of Bridge, subdivided into Bidding, Declarer Play and Defence. Included within this are all the 'If you remember just one thing' tips that also appear in the main body of the book.

The reader can either read 'The Game' first, paying particular attention to the tips, or they can dip in and out of the main body of text, picking a common mistake at random, with the option of cross-referencing to the same tip in 'The Game' section. Bridge is a growing enthusiasm and is now being played by a much wider age range - it is no longer a game for those who have retired. This is a long-awaited first book aimed at the vast majority of bridge players who would like to avoid falling into the same trap time and time again.
