I have been playing bridge seriously for about four years now. I am quite hooked on the game and, over that time, I must have bought and pored over about 15 books. About three of those books I would rate highly. This book I rate easily the best of them all.
The level of the instruction fits exactly where I am at now, a competent player who wants to know what I need to know to improve further and to keep building on my knowledge and ability. It is progressive, easy to understand with many illustrative hands. Probably the best way to describe my endorsement is that I have bought an additional copy as a gift for my regular partner with the intention that we will both use it as our guiding text for all things bidding.
I highly recommend this book.
