If you haven't played Euchre much then you might find this book useful. It has many clear illustrations to show a typical round of Euchre. If you have much experience at all though, you will be disappointed. 1. There is no discussion on Left Guarded. In fact, the main example in the book illustrates a case of left guarded, but it is played incorrectly (instead of throwing off and keeping the left guarded, the player cuts with the left bower and gets over trumped). 2. No discussion of calling 'next' was included. Although it is controversial, so many regular players do it that it should be mentioned. 3. No mention of how to stop a loner hand. 4. There was a discussion of ordering to stop a loner, but it was used incorrectly and the author said some people would call it stupid to do it the way he shows it. He does not give an example of doing it correctly by using the score to determine when to order up to stop a loner. His example implies ordering up when you are losing, not when you are leading by a large margin. The correct way to use it is if you are up 9 to 6 and the dealer has a right bower in the kitty, you may want to order it up to stop a potential loner if you don't have the left bower guarded. Being a player that has visited a few Euchre websites and read a few books on the subject I found it lacking.
