Author(s): Terence Reese
Both Terence Reese and Roger Trezel were brilliant players and Reese possessed a legendary skill in imparting a great knowledge of bridge with supreme lucidity. It was not their intention to present a complete museum of horrors, but to concentrate instead on the sort of mistakes that quite experienced players commit all the time. Since the original book appeared 30 years ago, bidding methods and styles have changed considerably but the wisdom in these pages has weathered the years - and has been revised by Ron Klinger, himself an international not only as an author but also as a teacher and player. In particular the bidding style has been brought into the 21st century, but without losing any of the sparkle or clarity of the original work.
If you want to win more often at bridge you will need to deepen your understanding of the game and to learn where not to follow conventions slavishly in bidding, defence and dummy play.
Ron Klinger is probably the world's leading bridge author and teacher with more than 60 outstanding books to his credit. He is also an Australian Grand Master and a World Bridge Federation International Master.
