Synopsis: Here is a
glittering selection of challenging hands taken from the author's daily
column in The Times. Individual chapters includes Rubber Bridge, the Best of
British, International Superstars, How You Should Play and the Experts Go
Wrong. There is also an invaluable index of playing techniques, as
exemplified by each hand. Finally, a book for every bridge fan -- never
before has there been a comprehensive history of the game, filled with
anecdotes about famous players, key tournaments, strategies, scandals, and a
little instruction for good measure. Evolving at some point in the 18th
century from a card game known as "whist," bridge has undergone countless
variations, and acquired a massive following of clubs and organizations in
the ensuing centuries. The New York Times Bridge Book is aimed not only at
the bridge-playing community but also an armchair audience fascinated by the
role of card games in world history.
