This book is designed for improving players who have recently completed beginner lessons and are now entering the world of Club Duplicate Bridge.
Kohl and Jiobu have presented the material in this book in a light, readable style, with liberal use of cartoons and aide-memoires. The authors start by addressing the mental approach necessary for bridge success - topics including how to learn, being mentally tough, trusting partner, and how to have constructive discussions after a disaster.
Then it goes on to cover the numbers game - basic probability, how the scoring method affects decisions, and how to become a lucky player. The remainder of the book is technical, covering decisionmaking, opening leads, defensive signaling, hand evaluation, and some recommended bidding ideas and approaches.
