4Good overview of essential bidding conventions - but shallowOct 29, 2003
By Gerald Robie
I suppose this book fulfills its purpose of providing an exposure to basic bidding conventions, and, from this perspective, its a good starting point. However, since it does cover so many conventions, the explanation and examples and not as in depth as a serious bridge player would like to see. I gave this book 4 stars because I think that it is a good reference book that should be in your bridge book library because it serves as a starting point for developing a bidding system. Serious players will want to go into more depth regarding the conventions that they decide to employ and should refer to other, focused books for comprehensive explanations.

5Advanced ConventionsJan 03, 2006
By S. P. Schwall
Terrific reference book. Covers Forcing No Trump, responding to preempts, Snapdragon Doubles, Unusual v. Unusual, Puppet Stayman, 1430 RKC, Q bidding, and many others. The good thing about this book is that it covers ALL aspects of each convention, from the first bid to all follow-up bids and responses.

5Excellent bridge resourceJun 30, 2008
By H. A. Zionts "Terri"
The format of this book makes it easy to understand and learn the conventions. Explanations are clear. Examples abound. There are even mini tests to insure that you "get it".

The series was recommended by our bridge teacher, so it is esteemed by professionals as well as by amateurs.

I only wish I could put this under my pillow and absorb it by osmosis when I'm sleeping.

I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to improve his or her bridge game.
