Think about it. That makes defensive signaling a vital topic, although one often neglected by players and writers. This book examines the real purpose of defensive signaling, and the basic kinds of signal available to defenders. The author goes on to recommend a comprehensive set of signaling agreements, and analyzes more complex situations in the light of these agreements. The final chapter describes the signaling methods of eight world-class pairs, with examples of their methods in action. This is a book any player looking to improve will want to read.
