This book present some of the most important bridge bidding systems used used in duplicate bridge tournaments, detailing the most known bridge bidding system, Standard American Yellow Card, by using a logical sequential order for openings, answers, competitive bids and defensive play in order to help the players during the games.

Much of the complexity in bridge arises from the difficulty of arriving at a good final contract in the auction.

A bidding system in contract bridge is the set of agreements and understandings assigned to calls and sequences of calls used by a partnership, and includes a full description of the meaning of each treatment and convention.

Standard American Yellow Card is a specific set of partnership agreements and conventions, using Standard American as a base. Standard American Yellow Card is a very specific collection of agreements, which can, of course, be modified and augmented by partnership agreement. In practical use, the term is often mis-used to refer to Standard American in general, or it could refer to a system that used SAYC as a base and made additional augmentations or changes to the base agreements.

Unless you are an absolute beginner, then I still wouldn't recommend this book. It is elementary information and too much of it, which makes the whole thing overwhelming and confusing. And it doesn't help that the suit icons are unprintable.

This is a Nook only book -- but it is not readable on nook. Doesn't any at Barnes & Noble check this? Throughout much of the book, there is discussion/explanations referring to cards - the Jack of Diamonds is referred to as "J" followed by the "Diamonds" symbol. However, none of the symbols for the four suits is rendered corrected - so instead of the Diamonds character we see a hyphen, etc. Unacceptable! I tried all the different fonts -- but none render correctly. This can only mean that this book was released without any editor or the author actually using a Nook to read this book. I find that hard to figure out. THis book seems like it might be good ---but in its current form on the Nook, it is unreadable. Barnes & Noble, do you stand behind the Nook or not?
