The leading expert guide on bridge conventions brought up to date with an additional thirty-two pages.
Ron Klinger is a leading international bridge teacher and has represented Australia in over 20 world championships since 1976. An Australian Grand Master and a World Bridge Federation International Master, he has written over 60 books, some of which have been translated into Bulgarian, Chinese, Danish, French, Hebrew and Icelandic. Two of his titles - Guide to Better Card Play and Right Through the Pack Again - won Book of the Year awards. He has created many new bridge ideas and devised a number of conventions. He lives in NSW, Australia, and has written a daily bridge column in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sun-Herald for over 15 years.
Explains each convention, and goes on to show how it should be used, and covers the good and bad sides of its use. I felt the best part of the book (and the part which makes it stand out from any other book on conventions) was that, first, he shows how you might set out to make any conventional understanding difficult to use well, when employed against you. Then he discusses how best to counter these (and other) defensive measures used against you when you yourself have used the convention ... Highly recommended. - Bridge Magazine
