This was an okay intro, though it turned out to be too basic for me, and I ended up skipping sections I knew. Eddie Kantar is apparently very well thought of, but I found his writing a bit eclectic. He'd occasionally be making some not-so-dry jokes in the midst of set of tips, and it was more jarring to read this as a result. I wouldn't really recommend this guide, but it begins my exploration into bridge books because they had it at the library!

Recently kind of learned how to play bridge and man is it complicated. I got several books to try to help and this was the best one that I found (even though I really hate the whole 'Dummy' angle). Didn't get a chance to finish it but would definitely check it out/use it again as reference.

An excellent book for beginners to bridge. Kantar does a good job of explaining both how to play and how to bid. Bridge is a complex game, and I have not found one book yet which made it simple; but this one is the best of the several I've read.

I'm starting a bridge club with a group of happening 30-somethings in the bay area.
We're the Bay Bridge Club - har har.
