This really helped my beginning bridge game. Very easy to understand. Practical. Friendly.

I read it as an eBook and it was difficult to keep track of the sample hands. Would be much better as a print book to flip pages back and forth.

Great guide for beginners. I read it to help me with my bidding/responses. Lots of good tips and tricks.

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!

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.

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.

Too many rules to memorize!
Enormous book!

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.
